Humanitarian Mediation Training in Copenhagen
Fra Mandag 10 Oktober 2022 -  09:00
Til Fredag 14 Oktober 2022 - 16:00


Are you interested in acquiring mediation & dialogue facilitation skills that can be used in humanitarian programmes and conflict contexts? Danish Refugee Council (DRC) via the Danish Network for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding is organising a five-day humanitarian mediation training from September 19 to 22. 


The training draws on principles of adult education, uses a participatory and practical approach aiming at developing skills and aptitudes, based on participants’ own experiences. The mediation & dialogue facilitation skills are based on neutral and impartial principles, and the aim of the training is to provide humanitarian aid workers operating in conflict contexts with practical knowledge, tools and skills to design, plan and conduct humanitarian mediation and dialogue facilitation processes aiming at:

  • Preventing or mitigating episodes of violence,
  • Preventing forced displacement and facilitating returns,
  • Improving humanitarian access and acceptance,
  • Enhancing respect for affected population’s basic rights.


The processes presented during the training will also be useful for personnel involved in safety and good quality programming activities such as:

  • Protection mainstreaming,
  • Participation and Community-based approaches,
  • Communication with beneficiaries and Community Engagement,
  • Accountability to Affected Population (AAP) processes,
  • Do No Harm.


Extensive experience in mediation or conflict management is not a requirement and the participants will be selected based on a motivated application. We will strive to put together a diverse group of participants in order for as much experience and learning to take place between participants. Depending on the number of applications from each organisation there may be a limit to the number of applicants from the same organisation.
