We do this by providing a better understanding of the key skills needed to reach agreements in highly complex multilateral settings.

Our work to provide capacity building, advice and knowledge on the core issues around negotiation management and multilateral summits is central to CEMUNE’s mission to enable stakeholders to prioritise deep and continuing cooperation to tip the balance in favour of humanity.
