Organization: Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection
Start date: 2 Apr 2020
End date: 2 Apr 2020
Registration deadline: 2 Apr 2020

As the novel coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, continues to spread globally, the risk it presents to populations living in camps and camp-like settings is growing. Camp managers are working quickly to adjust their programs to accommodate social distancing while continuing to communicate with communities and working with partners to improve communal sanitation.

Sphere recently released guidance for how the Sphere Handbook can help guide humanitarian staff in the response to the COVID-19 outbreak. But how should camp managers apply those standards and strengthen the prevention measures recommended by technical sectors?

Join us for a webinar on 2 April, organized by the CCCM Cluster and PHAP, to learn about COVID-19 prevention measures critical to the work of Camp Managers and others working in displacement settings. You will hear from WASH specialists, as well as experienced Camp program staff who have recently been involved in setting up special measures to prevent the spread of disease and develop key messages for populations living in temporary settlements. A representative from Sphere will also provide guidance for how the Sphere Handbook can be a useful tool for practitioners in this situation.

This webinar is the first in a series of webinars and discussions to be organized by the CCCM Cluster on COVID-19, focusing on how to manage CCCM services during emergencies. For more information, please visit the CCCM Cluster page on COVID-19.

E-workshop on Negotiation

Fri, 27 Mar 2020 02:54:43 +0000

Organization: UN Institute for Training and Research
Start date: 25 May 2020
End date: 27 May 2020
Registration deadline: 25 May 2020

This interactive online workshop taking place during three consecutive half days is meant to provide information and knowledge on the topic Negotiation, covering various skills and techniques.

It aims at improving participants’ analytical and interpersonal skills in their continual negotiations to make sure they do first things first. It is important to prepare before action, especially when strong coalitions and consensus are needed, and to improve the quality of relationships, before any other action. Negotiating the process and agenda is needed before dealing with problems and issues. In a meeting, negotiators must also communicate effectively, and use effective listening before speaking, asking relevant questions before presenting persuasive arguments. They also need to identify common platforms with others, before they express their own demands. In other words, participants will become more aware of how they behave in negotiation contexts, and whether or not they should behave the same way, or differently.

The e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) for the three days (approximately 12 training hours total).

Content and structure

This e-workshop will discover different themes of Negotiation and all participants will take part in highly interactive exercises in order to further enhance the participants’ understanding of the topic.

Nearly all decisions in international politics are the result of negotiations. The premise of this e-workshop is that most these negotiations are variable-pie situations, rather than zero-sum games. This means that negotiators may be able to reach solutions that ʺcreate valueʺ for all parties involved and are substantially better than mere compromises.

The course is highly interactive and allows participants to develop not only knowledge, but also practical skills and a helpful negotiation mindset. It draws heavily on real life negotiation examples from the world of international affairs and diplomacy to showcase how theoretical learnings can be translated into practice.

Methodology

This e-workshop will take place on the platform Zoom and will be facilitated by an expert on the theme during two half days. The material presented in the workshop will be interactive and assignments will be given for participants to further advance their knowledge.

Participants successfully completing the e-workshop will be awarded a certificate of participation.

Targeted audience

The course is open for anyone with an interest to discover and gain more knowledge about the selected topic. No prior knowledge or skills are needed to participate.

Please note that there are limited spots available for this e-workshop.

Technical Requirements

UNITAR will not provide refunds for customers who face technical issues beyond UNITAR's direct control. UNITAR recommends that all prospective participants test Zoom for free at Zoom.us prior to confirming their payment.

Basic system requirements:

  • Stable internet connection
  • Speakers and a microphone

This is an opportunity for participants to build essential personal leadership skills and qualities in order to thrive in leadership positions. Societal and economic factors might be obstacles for women to have ease of access to obtain these necessary skills.

Traditional gender stereotypes exclude women from power or restrict them to governance positions of ‘soft’ areas. Focusing on women empowerment and gender equality has a massive multiplier effect, including promoting peace and security, providing equal opportunities in society and the labour market, and achieving sustainable development for developing countries.

The e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) for the three days (approximately 12 training hours total).

  • Understand the importance of cultural factors for successful leadership and how gender plays a part, and acquire in-depth knowledge that will help you to navigate successfully in culturally diverse and international settings;
  • Acquire a deep understanding about the nature, power of and diversity in motivation and how this is impacted by gender – built on empirical science;
  • Be able to execute the 3 C’s of Leadership in order to optimise your unique leadership style as a female leader.

Content and structure

This e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) during three half days from 18-20 May 2020. The programme is devoted to educating on women’s leadership, covering topics such as:

  • What is leadership? Roots, views, importance and the 3 C’s;
  • Female leadership: challenges, strengths, values and role models;
  • International leadership in culturally diverse contexts: the cultural pyramid – layers of diversity and gender as a sub-culture, the male-female horizon;
  • Your personal and cultural leadership style and their unique strengths: reflections, coaching and feedback (tailored to participants wishes and needs);
  • Motivation: Self-confidence and women’s drive for/fear of success, female career motives, gender differences and consequences;
  • How can female leadership be at the competitive edge?

Methodology

This e-workshop will take place on the platform Zoom and will be facilitated by an expert on the theme during two half days. The material presented in the workshop will be interactive and assignments will be given for participants to further advance their knowledge.

Participants successfully completing the e-workshop will be awarded a certificate of participation.

E-workshop on Conducting Diplomacy Digitally

Fri, 27 Mar 2020 02:52:38 +0000

Organization: UN Institute for Training and Research
Start date: 4 May 2020
End date: 6 May 2020
Registration deadline: 4 May 2020

This interactive online workshop taking place during three consecutive half days is meant to provide information and knowledge on the topic Conducting Diplomacy Digitally.

Digital technologies have transformed the international environment in which diplomacy operates. Not only has it facilitated the participation of a plethora of new state and non-state actors in international relations, but it has posed serious structural and cultural challenges for foreign ministries and their diplomats working abroad.

Digital technologies have offered both traditional diplomats and the newer non-state actors new ways of analysing international trends and influencing the key debates. But too often an excessive focus on social media platforms means that both have missed the more innovative and effective ways of using digital technologies. At the same time, the use of social media platforms to spread fake news and disinformation demonstrates the dangers lurking in the digital world.

The e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) for the three days (approximately 12 training hours total).

Event objective

Participants will explore theories and practices of digital diplomacy. All participants will take part in highly interactive exercises in order to further enhance their knowledge of the topic approached during this e-workshop.

Having completed the e-workshop, participants will:

  • Understand how digital technologies have changed, and continue to change, the international environment in which diplomats and other state and non-state actors operate;
  • Understand the various digital tools available to conduct diplomacy, how they have been used in the past and their strengths and weaknesses;
  • Be able to develop effective strategies for using digital, and related, technologies to advance diplomatic and other international objectives.

Content and structure

This interactive e-workshop, which takes place during three consecutive half days 4-6 May 2020, particularly focuses on:

  • The ways in which digital technologies have transformed the international environment in which diplomats and diplomatic services have to function;
  • How diplomats, and other international actors, have used digital technologies, their successes and their weaknesses;
  • More effective ways of using digital technologies in foreign policy analysis, conflict analysis and crisis management. Targeted approaches to combating disinformation campaigns and integrating new technologies like AI and deep learning.

Methodology

This e-workshop will take place on the platform Zoom and will be facilitated by an expert on the theme during two half days. The material presented in the workshop will be interactive and assignments will be given for participants to further advance their knowledge.

Participants successfully completing the e-workshop will be awarded a certificate of participation.
