Mediation and Negotiation Workshop Facilitation for ICLA staff
DUTY STATION:Maiduguri, Nigeria
REPORTING TO:ICLA Programme Development Manager
The protracted crisis in North East Nigeria has displaced over two million people. Displacement has affected mostly the rural population with movements into urban areas and into neighbouring countries. Security incidents are still reported in and around conflict-affected areas. A notable improvement in the security situation has resulted in greater access to villages and towns and an increase in the number of IDP and refugee returnees in some local government authorities (LGAs) in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe.
Housing, Land, Property (HLP) disputes arise during and after humanitarian crisis. Frequently, land administration institutions and traditional land records have been damaged or lost, and governments, residents of diverse communities and displaced people need assistance to address and resolve land- related conflicts. Such help is critical for the promotion of stability, security and people’s ability to secure livelihoods. Efficient settlement of disputes is also important to prevent local disputes from escalating, becoming violent and exacerbating delicate relationships and social tensions that are often the result of a wider conflict or natural disaster.
NRC ICLA assists in the resolution of land disputes to displaced persons, host and return communities and humanitarian duty bearers. ICLA provides information, counselling, legal assistance and trainings for legal and civil identity, HLP and collaborative dispute resolution (CDR) structures. For over two years, ICLA has become increasingly involved in promoting and implementing collaborative dispute resolution procedures that encourage and facilitate voluntary settlement of housing, land and property (HLP) conflicts.
The overall objective for this workshop is to analyse the lessons learned in our CDR programming and continuously improve NRC ICLA staff capacity in mediation and negotiation techniques. The workshop will complement NRC’s intervention on HLP and CDR, through an increased understanding of mediation and negotiation skills and procedures.
To achieve these objectives, the trainers will be expected to:
Produce a workshop report and recommendations for ICLA.
