Recently, the American Political Science Association (APSA) released a new major report from a special task force concerning political negotiation in the United States and around the world. BU Professor Cathie Jo Martin was co-chair of this task force which included many prominent political scientists from universities across the globe. According to APSA, “this report explores the problems of political negotiation in the United States, provides lessons from success stories in political negotiation, and offers practical advice for how diverse interests might overcome their narrow disagreements to negotiate win-win solutions.” In addition to releasing the report which culminated many months of work, Professor Martin and her task force co-chair Jane Mansbridge testified about negotiation and compromise before Congress.
