Addressing Cognition and Emotion in Negotiation and Co-Mediation Practice: A Research Project
This chapter provides a small picture of the European Commission (EC) of the European Union (EU) negotiation and co-mediation thinking and initiative in the specific field represented by European Union external relations. We focus our attention on the EC and African, Caribbean, and Pacific countries’ (ACP) relationship and the related daily negotiating and co-mediation processes. Our aim is primarily to try to understand a little bit more European civil servant and diplomat thinking in its evolution, in order to provide a benchmark for future comparison and discussion. This is just the first step of the research. We used the tool of interviews with distinguished EC civil servants (international officials).
