The proposed Specialized Workshop aims to create a learning pathway for humanitarian practitioners as well as open a space for informal deliberations on the challenges, dilemmas and tactics of humanitarian negotiations. Through a multi-agency process based on peer exchanges, field practitioners will be able to apply specific negotiation tools and methodologies to their own practice with the aim of maximizing the humanitarian outcome of these processes and reframing how we see and understand issues of population movements and returns within the current context.

The CCHN Specialized Workshop further seeks to foster the creation of a dedicated circle of humanitarian professionals around this theme. Over a one-year cycle, this peer circle will discuss the latest challenges and dilemmas, share negotiation experiences, reflect on the development of new tools to address some of these challenges, as well as provide peer-to-peer support.
