Humanitarian Negotiations with Armed Groups
Humanitarians operate on the frontlines of today’s armed conflicts, where they regularly negotiated to provide assistance and to protect vulnerable civilians. This book explores this unique and underresearched field humanitarian negotiation. It details the challenges faced by humanitarians negotiating with armed groups in Yemen, Myanmar, and elsewhere arguing that humanitarians typically negotiate from a position of weakness. It also explores some of the tactics and strategies they use to overcome this power asymmetry to reach more favourable agreements.
