Diplomacy and Negotiation: the art of making one's will count.

Resolving conflict usually appears to be an easy job for newspaper readers. Sometimes political leaders play the role of the hero, others are blamed for their selfish aspirations, their arch strategies, or their contradictory ideologies. But, are you sure it can all be boiled down to this?

Selected players will have the honor of welcoming Julien Théron, an expert in Conflict and International Security from Science Po Paris, who will play a special role in moderating the three-day activity. The workshop will include group brainstorming, bilateral and multilateral negotiations, and statements.

So, are you ready to step into the shoes of the diplomat? This workshop will be an exceptional opportunity to perceive how difficult it is to get agreement with other political actors, especially when different interests are at stake. You will have the opportunity to concretize your diplomatic, strategic and communication skills by working in small groups, representing a state or an unconventional political actor, trying to figure out how to solve the conflict in question. The winners will be rewarded with a book, thanks to the availability of the publisher Il Mulino, and a final certificate.

One last word: don't be afraid of the process. Get your hands dirty and experience the arduous task of getting everyone in the room to agree. Don't wait now, go submit your application through the following link:

Fighting for our planet: what are the next challenges ?

The impact of the climate crisis on our lives is increasingly evident. To fight it back, we must be aware of the new challenges posed by the environmental emergency. What scenarios await us in the future? The climate crisis will change our lifestyle, migration will continue to increase due to unsustainable living conditions and governments will face new challenges regarding national and international (in)security. The young will have to take action to react to climate change and reverse it.



Hikma is delighted to announce the opening of the selections for the “Fighting  for our planet: what are the next challenges?” workshop in collaboration with Centro Studi Internazionali.


Participants will receive materials to read beforehand and will have to work in teams to organise an awareness-raising campaign on a major challenge of the current environmental crisis. Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to write an article on the issues addressed after attending the three-day workshop (extra and not compulsory activity). The winner will have his/her article published on the Centro Studi Internazionali  website.

Women in Power: a troubled journey

Hikma presents a 3-days workshop focused on a fundamental topic for our future: female leadership. In a world in constant evolution, the female figure in politics and, more generally, in leadership roles, is still extremely under-represented.



In a period in which 99% of the new unemployed in Italy, following the pandemic crisis, are women, we will embark on a journey into the world of power, analyzing the link between leadership and that concept that is too deeply rooted in our society: gender inequality. Rooted but subtle, evident but hidden, gender inequality affects us all on a personal and professional level



There are those who, to get to the top, take the lift, and those who, in the best of cases, use the stairs because the lift is out of order for them: women. Together with guests of excellence, Hikma will offer the tools to spot the differences between political figures of different genders: how should a woman be in order to be socially recognized, and what does she need to be a leader, in a world in which the ticket to power is paid in testosterone?

Cyber threat analysis: not if but when

Threats in the cyber world continue to grow in both number and complexity; institutions and companies often fail to adequately prevent them, with potentially disastrous consequences.

But, how do you analyze a cyber attack?


And what relevance can it have for institutions? Analyzing a cyber-attack is a complex process, requiring expertise from multiple fields and often made even more difficult by a lack of data. Analytica for intelligence and security studies analysts are among the experts who best know how to navigate the various facets of a cyber-attack. With us there will be 4 senior analysts of excellence: IT Risk & Advisory Cyber Security Senior manager Maurizio Spelta; Davide Maniscalco, lawyer and member of the special team; Francesca Caravita, Security Analyst in the Cyber Security team at Ernst & Young in Milan; the Head of Information and ICT Security Francesco Chiarello.
