That is, reach an agreement that satisfies their need. The goals of the parties are integrative.
Negotiation is necessary when one party requires the other party's agreement to achieve its aim. The aim of negotiating is to build a shared environment leading to long-term trust and often involves a third, neutral party to extract the issues from the emotions and keep the individuals concerned focused.
It is a powerful method for resolving conflict and requires skill and experience. Zartman defines negotiation as "a process of combining conflicting positions into a common position under a decision rule of unanimity, a phenomenon in which the outcome is determined by the process.
Transitions between stages are referred to as turning points. Structural, strategic and procedural analysis build on rational actors, who are able to prioritize clear goals, are able to make trade-offs between conflicting values, are consistent in their behavioral pattern, and are able to take uncertainty into account.
Negotiations differ from mere coercion, in that negotiating parties have the theoretic possibility to withdraw from negotiations. It is easier to study bi-lateral negotiations, as opposed to multilateral negotiations. Structural analysis[ edit ] Structural Analysis is based on a distribution of empowering elements among two negotiating parties.
Structural theory moves away from traditional Realist notions of power in that it does not only consider power to be a possession, manifested for example in economic or military resources, but also thinks of power as a relation.
Based on the distribution of elements, in structural analysis we find either power-symmetry between equally strong parties or power-asymmetry between a stronger and a weaker party.
All elements from which the respective parties can draw power constitute structure. They may be of material nature, e. Structural analysis is easy to criticize, because it predicts that the strongest will always win.
This, however, does not always hold true. Strategic analysis[ edit ] According to structural analysis, negotiations can therefore be described with matricessuch as the Prisoner's dilemmaa concept taken from game theory.
Another common game is the chicken dilemma. Strategic analysis starts with the assumption that both parties have a veto. Thus, in essence, negotiating parties can cooperate C or defect D. Often, co-operation of both sides yields the best outcome. The problem is that the parties can never be sure that the other is going to cooperate, mainly because of two reasons: Therefore the parties have contradicting incentives to cooperate or defect.
If one party cooperates or makes a concession and the other does not, the defecting party might relatively gain more. Trust may be built only in repetitive games through the emergence of reliable patterns of behavior such as tit-for-tat.
This table illustrates the options and possible outcomes of the Negotiator's Dilemma.
Process analysis[ edit ] Process analysis is the theory closest to haggling. Parties start from two points and converge through a series of concessions. As in strategic analysis, both sides have a veto e. Process analysis also features structural assumptions, because one side may be weaker or stronger e.
Process Analysis focuses on the study of the dynamics of processes. The process of negotiation therefore is considered to unfold between fixed points: The so-called security point, that is the result of optional withdrawal, is also taken into account.
