Strategic Issues in Humanitarian Affairs

2 credits

The theory and practice of humanitarianism continuously evolves in response to changes in the international political and economic environment and ongoing evaluation of humanitarian efforts. This course explores humanitarian affairs throughout the past century as a base for evaluating recent developments that will play a vital role in shaping humanitarian action in the future. High-level representatives from the political, international, military, religious, medical, legal and academic sectors contribute to lectures and discussions. Students discuss and develop strategies for responding to and mitigating complex emergencies.

This course is required for the IDHL module of the MIHA.  If interested in pursuing the MIHA, please apply here.
