Learn from Experience. Shape a Global Community.

The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) was founded in 2016 as a joint initiative of five humanitarian agencies: the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières Switzerland, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and the United Nations World Food Programme. Our aim is to facilitate the capture, analysis, and sharing of negotiation experiences and practices among the humanitarian sector and to provide a space for dialogue across multiple organizations.
