In a successful negotiation, it is not something along the line of ‘I win, you lose’ and we move forward. It has to be ‘win-win’ if you want the outcome to be a sustainable one! – Robert Mardini
The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) recently organised a 6-day World Summit. This global event brought together frontline negotiators, humanitarian policymakers, scholars, donors, and government representatives to tackle the most challenging present-day issues related to humanitarian negotiation.
During the World Summit, we met with some of the world’s leaders in the humanitarian field. In this interview Robert Mardini, Director-General of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) shares his experiences in humanitarian negotiations.
