Op-Ed written two days after the landslide victory of Flemish nationalists NVA and Francophone socialists PS in the federal elections of June 13 2010. I argue that the extreme differences between these two winning parties create opportunities. As negotiation scholars know very well, value is created more by trading on differences than on similarities. Furthermore, I argue that the game of chicken may only be resolved if the parties adopt an assertive and yet respectful attitude. It is key therefore that the negotiations are held away from media, in a discrete context.
