Executive Short Course: Negotiation in Humanitarian Crises
15 November - 26 NovemberCHF1500
Humanitarian negotiation is about securing access, providing assistance and protection for people or communities affected by emergencies, usually armed conflicts, disasters or epidemics. Negotiating in such contexts is a must-have skill for humanitarian professionals, as it can save lives.
Our executive short course, delivered in partnership with the Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN), focuses on designing adapted negotiation strategies in humanitarian settings and developing participant’s self-awareness. It links real situations experienced by participants with the latest concepts around humanitarian negotiation, meaning negotiations aimed at securing access, assistance and protection for civilians facing humanitarian emergencies.
