The ability to handle external relations successfully has a growing impact, particularly at higher levels of management, on the ability of organizations to deliver humanitarian assistance. Students are given the knowledge and skills to respond to the various external relationships that enable humanitarian agencies to operate successfully in a competitive and often hostile environment. Through case studies, the course teaches techniques for dealing with politically motivated and highly stressed interlocutors.
This course is required for the IDMHA 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.
