The Bloomsbury Humanitarian Debates
The concepts, language and institutions of security are increasingly part of the global aid agenda, with implications for where and why aid is allocated and how it is used. But what do we mean by security? Whose security are we talking about? And where does the role of different actors begin and end in ensuring security for populations?
This debate will address these points and discuss what it means for humanitarian agencies trying to negotiate their place in this space, as well as exploring what it means for humanitarian principles themselves.
