How does HCRI relate to Humanitarian Studies?
HCRI is a leading global centre for the study of humanitarianism and conflict response, global health, international disaster management and peacebuilding. Its work is driven by a desire to inform and support policy and decision makers, to optimise collaborations between partner organisations, and to foster increased understanding and debate within the field. Bringing together the disciplines of medicine and the humanities to achieve these goals, HCRI aims to facilitate improvements in crisis response on a global scale, while providing a centre of excellence for practitioners in emergencies and conflicts.
