The Program on Negotiation has announced that Sean McDonnell ’09 has won the Roger Fisher and Frank E.A. Sander Prize for his paper “Fighting With Faith: The Role of Religion in Dealing With Modern Conflict.”

The Fisher/Sander prize, established in 2007 in honor of Professors Emeritus Roger Fisher and Frank E.A. Sander, is awarded annually by the Program on Negotiation for the best student paper on a topic related to negotiation, dispute systems design, mediation, dispute resolution, or ADR.

In addition to receiving the $1,000 prize, McDonnell will have his name engraved on a plaque to be displayed at the Program on Negotiation. Professional school students currently enrolled in a PON-affiliated degree-granting program at Harvard, MIT, Simmons, or the Fletcher School at Tufts are eligible for the prize.
