We collaborate with researchers and leading research institutes to conduct various studies to support the humanitarian efforts of frontline negotiators. After our flagship meetings, discussions and formal gatherings, we publish reports linked to the role of humanitarian negotiations on emerging topics and contexts. To feed evidence and importance on frontline negotiations into the wider humanitarian debate and policymaking, we also feature related publications from our Community of Practice members, Strategic Partners and Scientific Collaboration partners.
