Interactive Simulation on Access Negotiations for Protection

The Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) is organizing an interactive simulation on negotiations for access for protection. The objectives of the simulation are to give the participants an opportunity to work in teams and experience the challenges of negotiating access for protection activities. During a debriefing participants will get the chance to reflect on the experience and learn from their peers.

The simulation targets:

  • Humanitarian practitioners with experience in negotiating protection activities and outcomes.
  • Humanitarian practitioners who are new to the field of protection but want to better understand the challenges related to protection negotiations
  • Academics, policy makers and donors who are interested in the topic, and are interested in experiencing what it feels like to negotiate at the frontlines

The agenda includes an opening and presentation of a simulation case, breakout groups and rounds of negotiations, before a plenary debrief and closing.
