Description

This one-day introduction to Humanitarianism provides an overview of the humanitarian sector and introduces participants to key issues in relief work.

This course begins by outlining the global context in which humanitarians work and explores the founding principles of humanitarian action: impartiality, neutrality, independence, and humanity. Building on this, the course then sets to explore the differences between humanitarianism and development the historical and political roots of relief work. An introduction to international law, including refugee law, is followed by an overview of the major actors in the international relief system, including the United Nations, and governmental and non-governmental organisations.

The course concludes with an overview of quality and accountability mechanisms in the sector that challenges participants to consider specific needs of beneficiaries in different contexts.

This short course provides an overview of the humanitarian sector that would be beneficial for both participants who are new to relief work and those who have experience in the sector but are looking to expand their understanding of the underlying principles of humanitarian work.

Registration is from 0815, with the course starting at 0830 and concluding by 1730. The day is broken up into 5 sessions, separated by a lunch break and coffee/ tea breaks in the morning and afternoon.

Participants will be actively encouraged to participate in classroom discussions and group work. The trainer will draw on both theoretical and practical knowledge in order to make the experience and learning applicable to the realities of the humanitarian sector.
