Come join the MIT Water club for our December monthly meeting and get a free dinner! the area of focus will be partnerships between developed and developing countries, with an emphasis on the U.S. and Mexico (Colorado River and Gulf of Mexico). He will present insights from his book, "Winning Together: The Natural Resource Negotiation Playbook" published by MIT Press, this fall 2017.
Dr. Verdini received MIT’s first ever interdisciplinary and interdepartmental Ph.D. in Negotiation, Communication, Diplomacy, and Leadership. His research, which explores how to improve the practice of transboundary water, energy, and environmental negotiations, won Harvard Law School’s Award for the best research of the year in negotiation, competitive decision-making, mediation, and dispute resolution. Selected from studies across diverse fields including business, economics, law, government, and psychology, this is the first time that the annual award has been given to an MIT alumnus, as well as the first time it has been awarded to someone from Latin America.
