In a multilateral context, effective negotiation skills are critical for managing interdependencies, leveraging power and influencing outcomes. Mastering negotiation tools can therefore assist in securing beneficial agreements at the international level.
Participants in this workshop will receive training from top negotiation experts on effective negotiation skills in multilateral conferences. They will also learn first-hand from experienced diplomats and international civil servants who have successfully negotiated agreements in the peace and security and social and economic spheres.
This workshop’s objective is to improve international cooperation through more effective negotiating in a multilateral context.
To enable participants to:
- Define and distinguish the purposes, products and processes of multilateral conferences;
- Assess the strategies and techniques for producing good negotiated outcomes;
- Anticipate and address the main challenges in multilateral negotiations, both from the negotiators’ as well as the Chair’s perspective.
- Analyze negotiation dynamics, based on case studies presented by international experts relating to the adoption of resolutions.
