Event description

Description

Multilateralism is a process of international negotiation involving primarily, although not exclusively, state actors and at least three parties. In the international context, effective multilateral negotiations help resolve and prevent conflicts. This session explores the characteristics and processes of multilateral negotiations, and considers how the model could be applied to address social, political and economic issues in the Hawaii community.
