Interview with Ron Ton by South Africa's Ubuntu Radio

Ron Ton (Clingendael Academy) was one of the facilitators of the 7th International Women's Capacity Building Programme on Conflict Resolution, Mediation and Negotiation in South-Africa (24 February - 6 March 2020).

In this podcast with South Africa's Ubuntu Radio, Ron Ton shares his knowledge and experience on negotiation & mediation in conflict resolution. He also speaks about the involvement of women in negotiation processes. What are the root causes of women being underrepresented in particular conflict resolution and peace negotiations?

"If you want to have more women in peace negotiating teams, you must invest more on instruments where women can build experience."

Clingendael has a longstanding strategic partnership with DIRCO, the South African Ministry of Foreign Affairs. See our training negotiation & mediation in conflict resolution. For more podcasts, see Café Clingendael on Soundcloud.
