Humanitarian Action Study Group
The Humanitarian Action Study Group (HASG) brings together both scholars and practitioners of humanitarian action to share knowledge, expertise and experience in the areas of humanitarian action, humanitarian intervention, human rights / protection, complex emergencies and the inter-section of development and humanitarian programming. If appropriate, the group will also act as a focal point for networking in support new research initiatives (including applied research) in these areas.
All are welcome. To join this study group, or for further information, please contact the Group Convenor at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your institution/ngo, area of interest/research and any suggestions for activities.
