international diploma in Operational Humanitarian Assistance (IDOHA)
  Humanitarian Negotiation

2 credits
 
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. If interested in pursuing the MIHA, please apply here.
