Events Explore Humanitarian Aid

February 13, 2019

Humanitarian aid typically enters the public consciousness at crises moments. This symposium invites us to look beyond those snapshots in time and to entertain a few of the many complexities – the challenges – of aid. These challenges, in some cases hidden from view, range from the nuts and bolts of aid administration, to the political calculations made by nations in their decisions about aid, and to the ways in which the values of diversity and inclusion have been introduced into the realm of humanitarian aid.
