COVID-19 NOTICE: How we are responding to coronavirus
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Associate Professor Mary Ana McGlasson as the new Director of the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership. “It’s a critical time,” explains Mary Ana. “COVID-19 has thrust the need for localisation back in the spotlight. I’m really excited to dig deeper and push harder on that agenda.”
We need to be aware of the limitations of our own mental frameworks, shaped as they are by the language that surrounds us, in our efforts for real transformation of the humanitarian system.
Suffering, scared, alone and dying. Why the COVID-19 humanitarian response must include leadership in palliative care.
The humanitarian principles that have directed the international community’s response to disasters for 150 years are ill-equipped to guide the response to COVID-19.
If the humanitarian system attempts to respond to any event during this pandemic using historical constructs, we will cause more harm than good.
The Centre for Humanitarian Leadership is a global network of innovative thinkers and practitioners dedicated to addressing the planet's most pressing issues.
The Centre offers accredited courses designed by working humanitarians that reflect the reality of crisis response efforts around the world, mixed with the solid, proven structure of Deakin University’s course delivery and assessment.
Drawing on our global partnerships, the Centre offers unparalleled access to humanitarian leaders, thinkers, and researchers from around the world. Our partners contribute expertise through coaching and mentoring. They offer enviable reach to apply academic research directly in the field. And they provide every resource required to transform the humanitarian sector for the better.
The Centre is a collective of leading thinkers and practitioners from across the humanitarian landscape. Together, we deliver an equally diverse blend of collaboratively-based education, research and technological innovations for the humanitarian sector and beyond.
