Daniel Druckman, Vernon M. and Minnie I. Lynch Professor of Conflict Resolution at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR), has received the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM) Lifetime Achievement Award to be given at the 2003 conference in Melbourne, Australia.

The award recognizes an individual whose life and work over a period of decades have generated outstanding contributions to the field of conflict management. Druckman’s work is an outstanding example of science and practice with wide impact that crosses disciplines as well as the boundaries of theory and practice, says Bruce Barry, IACM president, in an announcement in SIGNAL, the association’s publication.

In addition to his position at ICAR, Druckman also holds a faculty appointment at Sabanci University in Istanbul, Turkey. He has directed many projects at the National Research Council and has held senior positions at several research consulting firms.

Druckman’s publications include 11 authored or edited books and more than 125 articles and chapters on negotiating behavior, nationalism and group identity, group processes, peacekeeping, political stability, nonverbal communication, enhancing human performance, and modeling methodologies. His comparative study of turning points in international negotiation appeared recently in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, and he is a coeditor of the forthcoming ICAR textbook Conflict: From Analysis to Intervention. Druckman received the 1995 Otto Klineberg Award for Intercultural and International Relations from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues for his work on nationalism. He also received a Teaching Excellence award from George Mason in 1998.
