Humanitarianism: Past trends / future directions
This summer series of talks at SOAS will bring together academics and practitioners to discuss trends in humanitarian relief efforts and recent contributions to humanitarian studies. Over the course of five days we will chart the evolution of humanitarianism, look at current developments and tensions and seek to identify future directions and possibilities. The week will conclude with a panel of representatives of aid agencies invited to address future challenges to humanitarian relief across borders on the basis of their respective mandates and achievements.
Convened by Raymond Apthorpe (SOAS), Richard Axelby (SOAS) and Martin Webb (Birkbeck)
