OTPIC Officially Retired

As of December 2, 2005, the Online Training Program on Intractable Conflict (OTPIC) has been officially retired, and is no longer open to new registrations.

The successor to OTPIC is a course called Dealing Constructively with Intractable Conflicts (DCIC). The new curriculum is built around one of our major projects, Beyond Intractability, and offers a much more extensive and informative set of learning materials than that available through OTPIC.

Lack of a Negotiating Forum

Opening Page | Glossary | Menu Shortcut Page

Sometimes, both parties to a dispute might be willing to negotiate, but neither knows that the other is willing, or there is no way or place for them to get together. Often, each side will want any discussions to take place on their own ground, because that is seen to give them an advantage. An inability to decide on a neutral place to hold the negotiations can prevent negotiation from occurring at all.
