Almost 60 million people are displaced around the world due to conflict and disaster, and with the severity and frequency of disasters increasing, the humanitarian sector is facing significant challenges.
At the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership, we are working towards addressing some of humanity’s biggest challenges. Through teaching, research, policy development and innovation for the humanitarian sector we’re better serving communities affected by crisis with more responsive, efficient and relevant actions. We are transforming the way the humanitarian workforce is led, how humanitarian organisations operate, and challenging current approaches to humanitarian crisis response.
Our success is built on creating a hybrid system between practitioners and academia which promotes engagement with students, practitioners and stakeholders in a way that ensures our work has a measurable impact. Vital support from our partner organisations means we can continue to fill an internationally recognised gap in education, innovation and research and export our programmes globally.
