Humanitarian Talks


Eighty percent of all humanitarian crises are now conflict-related. Political polarisation is on the rise, while trust in institutions and confidence in economic systems is weak. In these highly politicised contexts, where most situations of displacement last for more than a decade in average, it is crucial for all assistance stakeholders to work together based on solid conflict analysis. However, whereas the implementation of the humanitarian-development part of the nexus has progressed to a certain extent, the humanitarian-peace dimension seems to be more complex to operationalise. The panel will give a space to humanitarian and foreign policy experts and humanitarian practitioners to discuss existing best practices in ensuring that humanitarian aid and crisis management efforts are well articulated, without putting in danger humanitarian principles and space.
