Dear Friends and Colleagues,


New York Peace Institute is delighted to invite you to a unique PeaceTalk on Thursday, April 23rd with Professor Hal Abramson of the Touro Law Center.  This talk will examine the negotiation techniques employed by Nelson Mandela beginning in 1985 while he was still in prison, until the day of his release in 1990.  Nelson Mandela has been called the greatest negotiator of the 20th Century.  Professor Abramson will begin by parsing the speech Mandela gave in Cape Town on the first day of his release.  He will then explore how this monumental speech opened a window into Mandala's approach to negotiating freedom for his country and himself.  Come join us for an exciting evening that’s bound to be as informative as it will be inspiring.


RSVP Required:

This PeaceTalk is free and open to the public; however, because space is limited, please be sure to RSVP here.
