Learning Through Experience

The Peer Workshop Program is based on experience-based learning. It requires a conscious effort of participants to have informal exchanges on their own negotiation experiences. Through sharing experience, participants learn from the successes and failures of others. They are also introduced to effective ways to support their peers in a negotiation process.

The Peer Workshop Program serves as a gateway to a global community of humanitarian negotiators. More than 1,200 field practitioners have already joined the Program and stayed connected through CCHN Connect – a community-powered forum on humanitarian negotiation. By joining this community, participants get exclusive access to Specialized Sessions, the Training of Facilitators, Peer Circle Program as well as thematic retreats.
