Humanitarian Negotiators Training Course

Training
from Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs, Fordham University
Registration deadline: 25 Oct 2019 Training date: 04 Nov 2019 to 13 Dec 2019 More Information

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.

This course is required for the IDOHA module of the MIHA. Students can take each of our short courses for academic credit toward a Master of Arts in International Humanitarian Action (MIHA) degree, or they can participate in the course without receiving academic credit.

A discount is applied for students who register for all courses in a module within one semester.
