World Summit on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation

For six days, humanitarian actors will discuss, share and propose pathways for the global immigration and refugee crisis

Broadcast live from Caux, Switzerland, the World Summit on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation will start on June 28th and close on July 3rd.

Friar Luciano, manager of the Fraternity – International Humanitarian Missions (FIHM) will speak about the organization’s actions in the humanitarian response to the Venezuelan immigration crisis in the Humanitarian Roraima Mission.

The manager of the Fraternity – Humanitarian Missions (FIHM) will give two lectures on the panel of Negotiation Under Pressure of Indigenous Population on Special Characteristics, the theme will be Negotiation within the context of indigenous populations in refugee shelters, dialogues, challenges and solutions. The lectures will take place on June 29 from 11:45 to 12:30 and on June 30 from 11:00 to 11:45 (Brasilia time).

This global event, with free access for everyone, is being organized by the Center of Competence in Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN), and will gather together leading frontline negotiators from around the world: humanitarian policy makers, academics, donors and government representatives, to address today’s most challenging issues related to humanitarian negotiation.

Faced with the current scenario of immigration crises and refugee situations that devastate the most diverse regions of the planet, it is essential to broaden the understanding on the different issues involved in the humanitarian response to these matters.

On the subject that will be presented on the panels, Friar Luciano summarizes: “To be a refugee is not an option; it is to not have an option. A refugee is in search of options, at least to establish a dignified life. Dialogue and negotiation need to consider this premise and respond in two stages: mitigating and stabilizing, then training and supporting development and social integration.”
