About this Event
This event, entitled ‘Re-envisioning Global Humanitarian Response’ will be the third webinar in our 2019/2020 series.
The webinar will focus on exploring key and emerging humanitarian challenges -including the impact of Covid-19 – and considering what shifts in discourse and practice, approaches to innovation, accountability, and power relationships might be necessary to address situations of crisis, conflict, and disaster in the future.
Panellists will reflect upon and challenge conventional thinking and the ways in which we understand humanitarianism, humanitarian priorities, actors, and principles.
