Dr Paula Gutlove is a Professor of Practice at the Simmons College School of Management, where she specializes in teaching leadership and negotiation for career success, in the MBA, MSMGT, MHA, and Executive Education programs. She is also the Deputy Director of the Institute for Resource and Security Studies (IRSS), where she founded and directs the international project Health Bridges for Peace. That project links health care with the prevention and resolution of inter-communal conflict, using a common interest in public health as an opportunity to bring people together for negotiation training, collaborative action, dialogue, and community reconciliation. Dr Gutlove is also an Associate of the Harvard Program on Negotiation Pedagogy Group, a founding member of the Leadership Team of the US-Muslim Engagement Initiative, and a founding board member of the Alliance for Peacebuilding. Dr Gutlove has served as a consultant to numerous international organizations, including the World Health Organization, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Dr Gutlove has extensive experience teaching and practicing leadership, negotiation, and the management of conflict. She has taught at universities in the USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia. Her fieldwork has included training facilitators in gender awareness, negotiation, leadership, and conflict management, and promoting community and individual empowerment and healing from conflict-related trauma. Much of this experience has been gained in war-afflicted areas including the Balkans, the North Caucasus, the Middle East, and Central Asia. Her professional expertise includes the development, administration, and implementation of programs, together with research and education. She has applied these skills to issues including negotiation and conflict management, gender and negotiation, post-conflict reconstruction, and building pluralistic civil society. A significant focus of her current research is on negotiation pedagogy – in online and face-to-face contexts – for collaborative problem solving, awareness and empowerment.
Dr Gutlove was trained in social science (BS Psychology, Cornell University) and dental medicine (DMD, Boston University), and was a resident in oral surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. She has held two post-doctoral fellowships in international peace and conflict management (at the Bunting Institute at Harvard University, and the Peace Research Center at the Australian National University).
