Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
The Canadian International Institute of Applied Negotiation (CIIAN) is dedicated to the prevention and resolution of destructive conflict and to building sustainable peace at local, national, and international levels.
Please list the countries and/or regions in which you (or your organization) have direct and significant expertise
Founded in 1992, CIIAN was built upon the notions of peace, social justice, and principled dispute resolution based in negotiation. CIIAN soon became one of the leading ADR organizations, gaining a solid reputation for effective programming and training. Our growing reputation resulted in international recognition and by the mid-1990's we were invited to partner with organizations, especially in the emerging democracies of Eastern Europe. Recent years have seen CIIAN continue to offer dispute resolution programming through local organizations in a number of conflict zones, including Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Columbia, Haiti, Lebanon, Macedonia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Crimea. We are now recognized as a leader in violence prevention, using a catalytic approach that balances security and development.
What is your current country of residence (or location of your organization)?
What is your current job (and organization) and/or where and what field are you studying?
We believe that reducing violence, achieving stability and building sustainable peace can only be attained through the sound engagement of the people and institutions in conflict. We are committed to building relationships and partnerships with appropriate leaders and organizations as a route to real change. We use and develop state of the art, empirically tested methods of conflict prevention, resolution and peacebuilding. And we are committed to transferring knowledge and competencies to those with whom we work.
How many years professional experience do you have ?
First of all, thanks for accepting my friend request. Given CIIAN's primary sectoral areas of expertise, we beleive you can be of much assistance with respect to Angola's belligerent occupation of Cabinda and ensuing maintenance by force of colonial domination. This conflict between Cabinda and Angola is in fact a legal-political problem that falls within the jurisdiction of the United Nations, particularly the UN C-24 and the UN Office of Legal Affairs. So we believe CIIAN can help as its areas of expertise includes conflict resolution and facilitation. In advance, much thanks for your time and help in this matter. Best regards
