Why?

To:

1. Gain an understanding of the power of negotiation and the role of negotiators in a multilateral context.
2. Understand negotiation & the role of negotiators in multilateral contexts.
3. Explore ways to create more inclusive negotiations

As Geneva celebrates a centenary of multilateralism since the establishment of the League of Nations and the United Nations turns 75 amidst the COVID-19 outbreak and its global impact, this session aims to delve into negotiation, the role of negotiators in multilateralism, and the potential for building more inclusive negotiations.
Mr. Jerome Bellion-Jourdan, currently working collaboratively to explore the potential for a new initiative on global negotiations, will be joined by Ambassador Yvette Stevens and Mr. Victor do Prado to interact with participants to consider the following issues and more: how can negotiators find a collaborative approach to an issue? How can negotiators overcome deadlocks?
How can we handle the real or perceived asymmetry of power? In largely State-driven multilateral negotiations, what is the role of other stakeholders?
Amid calls for a more inclusive multilateralism, the session will explore the potential and the challenges to experiment with new formats of negotiations.

Participants will also be invited to contribute anonymously to a survey as a test for crowdsourcing and negotiating possible Guiding Principles for Negotiators.
