Members of CCHN Community of Practice shared their methods on how to manage stress collectively and individually while negotiating in volatile and complex situations or when a crisis emerges. The interview was done during the CCHN Thematic Retreat on Negotiation Under Pressure 2019.
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.
