You are a humanitarian practitioner who has to negotiate with several stakeholders on a range of issues including access and coordination, this course could interest you.

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.
