About us

The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation is a joint initiative of WFP, UNHCR, HD, MSF, and ICRC. It was established in 2016 to enhance professional exchanges and peer learning among frontline humanitarian negotiators.

The Centre is staffed by seconded employees of the five Strategic Partners. It organises three types of activities:

Context-Specific Activities

 

We support agencies’ negotiation capacity in given contexts

People-Specific Activities

 

 We develop field practitioners’ negotiation skills

Theme-Specific Activities

 

We address negotiation challenges through specific themes
