Assessing humanitarianism: disaster & data dissemination

Editors Note: This is an archived post from 26/2/2010.

Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute’s (HCRI) 2nd ESRC funded seminar Assessing humanitarianism: disaster & data dissemination.

Friday 26 February 2010

University Place lecture theatre 1.218

In convening this seminar the HCRI will adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to the evaluation of humanitarian aid. Exploring previous and current approaches we will review what various assessments entail, what they were aiming to measure, and highlight what these methodologies can reveal or conceal. Case studies, including that of the earthquake in Haiti, will be utilised to provide a context for discussions; intended outputs include the development of a novel and robust methodology for assessing the impact of humanitarian aid.

Please note that places at this event are free of charge and available on a first come first served basis – email rebecca.whitehead@manchester.ac.uk to reserve your place.

The programme and slides from our 1st ESRC seminar 24 & 25 Nov 09 Who are the humanitarians now? are available on the website http://www.hcri.ac.uk/events/humanitarians/index.htm . Podcasts and a report from the Nov seminar will also be available shortly
