Columbia Law School and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) are pleased to announce the third series of workshops on Conflict Resolution, Mediation and Negotiation.

The workshops will deliver the most rigorous, intellectually engaging, interactive, custom programming for United Nations diplomats. Our individual day-long courses will leverage Columbia’s unparalleled strength in the area of conflict resolution, weaving it in with skills building
programming that acknowledges the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals.

The programs are designed for delegates at any level who wish to achieve mastery of negotiation, mediation and multilateral conflict resolution processes, and implement them toward solving the world’s most difficult problems.

Participants may expect:

  • Innovative, multidisciplinary teaching at an equivalent level to that seen in Columbia University and Columbia Law School degree programs
  • Access to the best Columbia Law School faculty and experts
  • Interactive exercises with individual coaching toward greater skills mastery
  • Rigorous programs delivering the latest in theory toward achievement of the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals

The Workshop focuses on understanding the importance of gender equality in the workplace and the need to make endemic changes at organizational levels to augment women participation. The morning session would focus primarily on the significance of having women in the workplace, and the recognition of barriers to gender equality. Significant trends and case studies on gender equality would be discussed.


The afternoon session would focus on the ways and means of making effective changes at organizational levels. Discussions during this session would centre around the impact of changes at both individual and inter-personal levels and the case studies on different approaches.


The Workshop will be interactive and will have classroom exercises.
