Project InterACTION provided a systematic examination of culture, negotiation, and collaborations, focusing on the Middle East. Thrust I advanced a comprehensive understanding of core cultural values, norms, and attitudes within the Middle East. Thrust II examined dynamic effects of culture on psychological and social processes in negotiation. Thrust II examined dynamic effects of culture on collaboration processes. Thrust IV examined how dynamical and agent based modeling can help us to understand culture, negotiations and collaborations. We developed and solidified a very high caliber research team in the Middle East as well as develop a virtual intercultural laboratory. We initiated many collaborative projects across the team that span multiple methodologies qualitative, experimental, survey, archival, computational within each thrust. We have published 50 papers in peer reviewed journals, 29 book chapters, 240 presentations, 32 conference proceeding publications, 42 manuscripts, 1 edited book and 1 special issue, 16 spin off grants, 58 honors and awards, 77 references to our work in the media, 18 Graduate MURI student theses in progress, and had over 70 undergraduates volunteering on MURI projects. The MURI Virtual Brownbag Series invited speakers from across teams and disciplines. In all, we capitalized on our interdisciplinary team to advance novel interdisciplinary and dynamic approaches to culture and collaboration and negotiation which have significant theoretical and applied value.
