Learn from Experience. Shape a Global Community.

The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation is a joint initiative of ICRC, UNHCR, WFP, MSF Switzerland, and HD, established in 2016. We facilitate the capture, analysis and sharing of humanitarian negotiation experiences and practices with a view to supporting a more systematic approach to frontline negotiation. We provide a space for multiagency dialogue and intend to foster a Community of Practice among humanitarian negotiators worldwide.
