Criteria and Expectations
The Peer Circle Program is designed for humanitarian professionals from the five Strategic Partners (WFP, MSF, UNHCR, ICRC, HD) with first-hand experience in humanitarian negotiations. Humanitarian professionals from other agencies and NGOs are also invited to apply and will be considered depending on availability of places.
Participants decide which Peer Circle they wish to join, based on their professional experience.
⚠ Please note that members are required to complete a CCHN Peer Workshop before joining a Peer Circle. Participants are also strongly encouraged to attend a CCHN Specialized Workshop prior to joining the Peer Circle Program.
The Peer Circle Program is free for all participants. However, participants take charge of the cost of their own travel and accommodation. Funding support may be available to a limited number of participants.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
