Abstract

This article uses an intercultural bargaining framework for sellers and buyers to analyze co-operation and conflict in international negotiations. On the basis of game theoretical reasoning, culturally programmed bargaining behavior is transformed into a buyer-seller interaction of importer-exporter negotiations. The cultural differences of the players can be seen in the initial offer, the strategic approach, the valuation of time, the frequency of rejection and the objectives of the negotiation. In order to provide prescriptions for cross-cultural bargaining, the clash of cultures is dealt with in nine scenarios on an abstract level to show potential conflicts and cooperation between the players.
