Diaspora Humanitarianism

March 2022


CAS: Locally-led Humanitarian Action

The humanitarian system has often been criticized for being shaped predominantly by actors from the global North, for its failure to acknowledge local and national capacities, for creating dependencies instead of sustainable outcomes, and for its increasing inability to reach those in need of humanitarian assistance. At the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, states, NGOs and private companies made a number of commitments to address these problems. In parallel, the humanitarian system began to change from the bottom up. New actors such as diaspora communities and local organizations gained importance and new forms of cooperation emerged that could fundamentally change the humanitarian system. In the context of this exchange workshop, you will learn about the latest findings on the role, benefits and advantages of diaspora and migrant organizations in humanitarian settings and discuss best practices among NGOs together with people of the diaspora or migrant organization representatives.

The course will be held in March 2022. More information will follow soon.
