Online Peer Workshop on Humanitarian Negotiation | Greece
1 February 2021 - 3 February 2021
The Peer Workshop Program draws heavily on the CCHN Field Manual on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation. Sessions will focus on:
– Strategic planning and critical thinking in complex environments
– Context analysis and network assessment
– Analysis of interests and motives of the counterpart
– Setting objectives and priorities in humanitarian negotiations
– Defining scenarios and red lines in a negotiation
– Planning and evaluating negotiation processes
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.
Gateway to a Global Community
The Peer Workshop Program serves as a springboard to a global community of humanitarian negotiators. More than 1,800 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.
