Welcome to The International Humanitarian Studies Association (IHSA) online directory on humanitarian organisations.

In 2019, IHSA developed this directory in order to connect and make visible all different institutions active in the humanitarian sector. Currently, the directory has more than 200 organisations active in the humanitarian field. With your input we hope to grow the list every year.

The directory is organized in different filters. Geographically you can search either by continent or country. You can also search by theme or type of institution.

This directory classifies the organization of the humanitarian sector in three large groups: Research & Publication organization, Portals & Platforms, and Educational Institutions.

If you are interested in the educational offers and institutions of the humanitarian sector, this directory also allows you to filter these institutions by academic and non-academic type and by the type of course they offer.

Finally, If you would like to include an institution or a programme in this directory feel free to. It is completely  free. You can do so via this form.
