Event description

Description

Does international humanitarianism have a future, or will it fail in the face of insurmountable challenges? In particular are external agencies and organisations are drawing sufficiently on local organisations and individuals already responding to the crisis, and can the humanitarian coordination structure of The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs ever function effectively? Moreover, how can humanitarian practice continue in the face of significant funding shortfalls with key nations increasingly turning inward in the face of the crises of others? These are the question addressed in this panel of expert practitioners, including Red Cross, RedR (emergency deployment), Humanitarian Advisory Group and ex-ADF partners (formal and informal) of the Centre for Global Research.
