Ambassador Tommy Koh of Singapore Named ‘Great Negotiator of 2014’ by Harvard

The Program on Negotiation (PON) at Harvard Law School and the Future of Diplomacy Project (FoDP) at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), have jointly named Ambassador Tommy Koh of Singapore the recipient of the 2014 Great Negotiator Award.

Ambassador Koh is the eleventh recipient of the Great Negotiator Award, in recognition of his work as chief negotiator for the United States-Singapore Free Trade Agreement; for chairing the negotiations that produced a charter for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN); for key actions that resolved territorial and humanitarian disputes in the Baltics and Asia; and for successfully leading two unprecedented global mega-conferences: the Third U.N. Conference on the Law of the Sea, and the U.N. Conference on the Environment and Development, also known as the Rio Earth Summit.

Ambassador Koh will be honored during a half-day program on April 10, from 1:30-5 p.m., in the Ames Courtroom, at Harvard Law School. The highly interactive program will feature a conversation with Ambassador Koh and panel discussions with faculty from PON and FDP.
