Why am I running?
I would like to continue as part of the IHSA board to act as a liaison between IHSA and the humanitarian tech & innovation community; to further dialogue between academics, practitioners and private sector actors; and to contribute to make the association a strong stakeholder in the dialogue about the future of humanitarian ethics.
