How does AIDMI relate to Humanitarian Studies?

Why am I running?
AIDMI wishes to bring in far more ideas, individuals, and institutions from South Asia to IHSA as well as challenges of future of work in humanitarian action; fourth industrial revolution impact on humanitarian action; and concept of universal basic relief to all victims.
