Essentials of Humanitarian Practice will give you an insight into life working in the field whilst increasing your understanding of the characteristics of natural disasters, conflict induced emergencies and the requirements for an effective humanitarian response.
Practical learning is at the heart of the course, during the week we will put you at the centre of an emergency response in an engaging simulation. This will challenge your motivations and beliefs, giving you firsthand understanding of what it is like to work in the field.
Who should attend?
Anyone working in or entering the humanitarian sector, including staff of humanitarian aid organisations and individuals actively seeking work in the sector.
What does the course cover?
You will examine the humanitarian context, the concept of humanitarian principles, the international humanitarian system, accountability, international law, needs assessment, individual responsibility and the potential impacts and dilemmas of humanitarian responses.
Cross-cutting themes such as gender, culture and security are considered throughout the course. You will be encouraged to reflect on your own motivations and competencies for relief work regularly during the week.
