One of very few courses focused on negotiation, it allows humanitarian programme managers to develop skills to enable them to successfully negotiate with a multitude of actors. Through lectures and case studies, participants learn to design a negotiation strategy that is adapted to a specific context and takes into account short, mid-and long-term outcomes.
External speakers include academics and practitioners, and come from a range of institutions and organisations including the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, International Committee of the Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières.
