Background

Facts and figures about our 'negotiation skills for humanitarian aid workers' programmes:

The programme was established in 2016 with support from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign affairs. The training courses are offered both in The Hague as well as near conflict areas.

Since 2017, Clingendael Academy has organised 18 training courses and trained over 300 humanitarian workers of 40+ (I)NGOs and UN agencies in essential negotiation skills. Within two months, 80% were using the techniques in their negotiations. 

94% of respondents of all participants in 2017 and 2018 have said they found this training to be useful or very useful for their work. The percentage of participants who felt confident to lead a negotiation process went up from 51% to 81%

The training courses are delivered in English and French.
