Professor Jeanne Brett receives lifetime honor
The International Association for Conflict Management recognizes Brett for her ‘impact across disciplines’
8/6/2009 - Jeanne M. Brett, the DeWitt W. Buchanan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Dispute Resolution and Organizations at the Kellogg School, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association for Conflict Management.
The award, bestowed in June at the group’s annual conference in Kyoto, Japan, recognizes Brett for her outstanding contributions to the science and practice of conflict management.
“The recipient is a boundary spanner, whose rich history of theoretical and empirical work has made a significant and enduring impact across disciplines and the artificially imposed boundaries of theory and practice,” the association said.
Brett, a member of the Kellogg faculty since 1976, is director of the Kellogg School’s Dispute Resolution Research Center. She has published more than 120 books, articles, chapters and technical reports. She is the recipient of best paper awards from both the Academy of Management and the International Association for Conflict Management. In 2003, she received the Academy of Management’s Distinguished Educator Award.
Brett’s most recent book, Negotiating Globally (Jossey-Bass), is a culmination of her work on cross-cultural negotiation. The book, relevant to both academics and practitioners, synthesizes research findings and offers a framework for understanding how culture influences the interests, priorities and strategic behavior of negotiators. The first edition of the book was awarded the IACM Outstanding Book award in 2002.
