Workshop on the Study of Humanitarianism

Dates:
  • Fri 20 Oct 2017 09.30 - 17.30
  Add to Calendar 2017-10-20 9:30 2017-10-20 17:30 Europe/Paris Workshop on the Study of Humanitarianism

The goal of the workshop is to bring together leading scholars on humanitarianism to discuss current research approaches and to identify future research agendas that can bridge the divide between the social sciences and the humanities, and between theory and practice. Specifically, we would like to encourage an open exchange on the ways in which social scientific, legal and historical perspectives can be brought into dialogue with each other, and on possibilities of translating historical insights into the functioning of humanitarian work into future approaches. To do so, we have asked participants to present a short memo which identifies key issues in the study of humanitarianism (from their perspective), as well as some of their ongoing research, with the aim of highlighting aspects of their research that they: a) consider the most relevant, promising, or challenging methodologically or conceptually; and b) believe relate well to contemporary policy-making.
