Humanitarian Negotiation 16

April 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

| $1,600

Course Description:

Many humanitarian aid professionals believe that negotiation is perhaps the activity in which they spend most of their time in both field and headquarters situations. Almost everything that humanitarian workers need to achieve has to be negotiated with donors, host governments, local structures, communities, beneficiaries, other humanitarian agencies and their own staff. This course gives students an understanding of negotiation theory as well as practical historical and current applications. It examines all types of negotiations, from roadblocks and negotiations in situ for access to negotiations for peace agreements far from the conflict. Theoretical lectures are supported with group scenario-based exercises.
