About Us

The Consensus Building Institute (CBI), was founded by Dr. Lawrence Susskind in 1993 and has its intellectual roots in, and on-going relationships with, the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School as well as the MIT Department of Urban Studies. CBI improves the way leaders and groups make organizational decisions, negotiate agreements, and manage multi-party conflict, disputes and planning efforts. Across our program areas we work with governments, businesses, community groups, advocacy organizations, researchers and educators. Our work spans economic, environmental and social issues in the U.S. and around the world. While the majority of our work deals with issues of public policy, we also work with private companies and multi-national corporations helping them build capacity to reach better, more valuable agreements both internally and with strategic partners.
