“In International Relations, most conflicts are negotiated using the model of Totalism. All issues of disagreement are placed on the table; all organizations, representing all sides, are at the table. The rules are rigid, the procedure impersonal, and time and again the results are absolute failure. Thus to facilitate an effective negotiation, you must learn to use the model of Gradualism.” – Larsen in JT Rogers’s Oslo
