The fora where peace and development issues are debated and pushed forward are mostly of multilateral nature. In a multilateral context, effective negotiation skills and understanding of the negotiation context are critical for managing interdependencies, leveraging power and influencing outcomes. Mastering negotiation tools can therefore assist in securing internationally valuable agreements. This has become all the more important as the issues at stake in international negotiations have become increasingly complex, climate change being only one example. These global challenges require concerted multilateral action, which further underscores the need for strategically negotiated agreements.
This workshop’s objective is to improve international cooperation through more effective negotiating in a multilateral context. To this end, at the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: Define and distinguish the purposes, products and processes of multilateral conferences; Assess the strategies and techniques for producing good negotiated outcomes; Anticipate and address the main challenges in multilateral negotiations; Analyse negotiation dynamics, based on case studies presented by international experts.
The workshop takes place over two full days and includes the following core modules:
