Leadership and Management of a Humanitarian Response

Despite humanitarian agencies' not-for-profit status, they must be managed and administered on sound business principles. Students learn the managerial methods and skills required to become senior managers and directors of humanitarian organizations. Within these roles, such individuals need to work with and manage skilled specialists in various fields.

This course has been developed and will be taught by Peter Rees-Gildea, who has over 40 years of experience in leading and managing responses to humanitarian disasters. He has experience in these roles working in the field, at headquarters and now as a consultant working with INGOs, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement and the United Nations. He has experience in institutional policy development and in-country strategic planning. Peter is currently undertaking a series of consultancies in Damascus with the Danish Red Cross in their partnership with the Syrian Red Crescent.
