Our online Knowledge Hub collects, systematises, and makes available practical knowledge on multilateral negotiation facilitation. It aspires to become a central resource for practitioners, academics, and private actors.

  • Online databank outlining the best and worst negotiation management practices;
  • “The Great Facilitator” video series on prominent facilitators of past multilateral negotiations, such as former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Michael Zammit Cutajar;
  • Resource library and policy briefs on multilateral negotiations covering relevant publications and topic experts in various policy fields;
  • Newsletters featuring recent research and policy papers on multilateral negotiation management.
