A cutting edge conference addressing the most important current and widely debated issues faced by academics and practitioners in the field of Humanitarianism. In addition to an exciting and interactive agenda, the conference is unique, as it has been organized by students from the University of Manchester’s new Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute.

If you are interested in Humanitarianism and want a fresh perspective on the subject, then attending this conference is vital. The audience will benefit from a diverse range of disciplines, serving to encourage juicy and heated debates. All are welcome!

High profile speakers have been secured, such as…  Dr Hugo Slim (CforC and University of Oxford); Dr Rony Brauman (University of Manchester and MSF); Dr Christopher Cushings (University of Bradford); Dr Stephen Hopgood (SOAS University of London)

There will be a roundtable debate on Libya and a group work section on Disaster Response, so come prepared to interact and network with others.
