CCHN World Summit on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation
|Date||28 Jun 2021 — 3 Jul 2021|
|Address||Broadcast from Caux, Switzerland|
The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) has always striven to bring together humanitarian practitioners from around the world and enhance their negotiation skills through peer exchanges. This year, the CCHN is promoting and facilitating a dialogue between frontline negotiators from the CCHN Community and other professional circles including humanitarian policymakers, conflict management specialists, negotiation scholars and reconciliation experts from around the world.
The CCHN World Summit on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation is organised by the CCHN, a strategic partnership between the ICRC, WFP, UNHCR, MSF and HD. This six-day event is organised in collaboration with Initiatives of Change (IofC), an international movement focusing on conflict resolution, trust-building and personal transformation.
Multi-format sessions will be delivered in English, with some sessions delivered in Spanish, Arabic, or French, on an online platform dedicated to the summit. This event will also serve as the 5th Assembly of the CCHN Community of Practice and further enhance the digitalisation and regionalisation of humanitarian negotiation.
The Summit is open to CCHN community members; other humanitarian professionals; professionals engaged in negotiation, mediation, conflict management, development and peacebuilding; representatives of donor governments; as well as civil servants, academics, scholars and students and media focused on these areas.
Summit partners and contributors
The summit partners and contributors will share perspectives and knowledge on humanitarian negotiation, mediation, policy and diplomacy through multiple sessions, case studies and workshops. These will serve to enhance collaboration in humanitarian negotiation and across sectors but also expand the participants’ understanding of current challenges and dilemmas.
