Organisations Directory

IHSA has developed this directory in order to connect and make visible many of the institutions active in humanitarian studies. Currently, the directory contains over 200 organisations active in research in the humanitarian field. With your input we hope to grow the list every year.

With the filters on the left you can search per region, theme or type of institution. This directory classifies the organization of the humanitarian sector into three large groups: Advocacy & Media, NGO's & Networks, and Research & Publication.

This organisation database is linked to the humanitarian expertise database via the experts column in the table below. As this organization database grows, it will also link to information about an increasing number of humanitarian experts associated with these organisations.

If you would like to include a humanitarian institution in this database feel free to suggest a link. It is completely free.
