Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) covered the CCHN World Summit 2021 that took place between 28 June and 3 July. The six day conference on the challenges of humanitarian negotiation on the frontlines took place in a hybrid format in Caux (VD, Switzerland).
The CCHN first started researching the topic of communities at the centre of negotiations in the framework of the Middle East Think Tank, a year-long project developed in collaboration with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.
A group of CCHN community members shared experiences, reviewed litterature and worked with experts from other sectors to identify the main challenges related to the topic.
The group then led focus group discussions to develop good practices and tools that support frontline workers when negotiations involve communities.
