Unicist negotiation describes the nature of expansive negotiations. Expansive negotiations are those that generate additional vital space for the parts involved. Expansive negotiations are those that seek for the expansion of the vital space of the parts included. Defensive negotiations are triggered by a threat that endangers the vital space of the parts included.
Negotiations are the actions where the diplomatic power is transformed into concrete value. A negotiation is a process where synergy between parts is achieved finding the complementation and the space where non-conflictive relations are possible.
The purpose of the negotiation context is to produce an evolution conflict that allows building a complementation.
The active function to produce this evolution conflict is the existence of an authority conflict that is necessary to define the “value” of the parts involved in a negotiation.
After the authoritative role of the parts has been accepted an involution conflict begins.
In this involution conflict each part tries to prevail over the other one and finally, the evolution conflict solving is possible after the need to “degrade” the opponent has finished and both parts accept their mutual values.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
