About Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue
The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) is a Swiss-based private diplomacy organisation founded on the principles of humanity, impartiality and independence. Our mission is to help prevent, mitigate, and resolve armed conflict through dialogue and mediation
HD is one of the world's leading organisations in the field of conflict mediation. Since 1999, it has been helping to prevent and resolve armed conflict, and to alleviate the suffering of those affected by violence. Independent and discreet, we work with our clients - parties to conflict - to assist them in their search for peace.
We use the tools of private diplomacy to expand the space for the non-violent resolution of armed conflict. We open channels of communication and mediate between parties in conflict, facilitate dialogue, provide support to the broader mediation and peacebuilding community, carry out capacity building work, and conduct research on mediation issues. We deploy our expertise to support local and nationally-owned processes that protect civilians and foster lasting and just peace. Our position enables us to link and collaborate with multiple organisations and actors within the mediation field.
In the last 15 years, HD has positioned itself as a leader in the field of conflict mediation. In recognition of its strategic role and to reflect its strong link to its host country and to Geneva, Switzerland granted HD a special international status in July 2015 awarding it privileges and immunities that will further support its peacemaking mission worldwide
