Topic: Kim Jong-il and North Korea’s nuclear program
“The Harvard Negotiation Project annually presents a ‘Great Negotiator Award’ to an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary capabilities in international negotiations. Recent winners have included George Mitchell (for Ireland), Richard Holbrooke (for Bosnia), and Martti Ahtisaari (for Kosovo and Aceh). Only half in jest, over the past several years, I have urged my colleagues who run the program to give the prize to Kim Jong Il.”
Allison also wrote “Iraq: Would we choose war again?” on December 21, 2011 for Power & Policy.
