Monday 19 November 2012, 1.15PM to 2:15 pm
Speaker(s): Jeroen Jansen, Head of the Programmes Unit at Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF-UK)
The Programmes Unit at MSF engages in reflection, analysis and research related to humanitarian affairs and health policy. They conduct advocacy in the UK context as well as to support field operations.
Jeroen will discuss the contemporary challenges and dilemmas faced by humanitarian workers, and how organisations like MSF adapt and respond to these challenges. He will focus in particular on what can be done
through research and advocacy.
This talk is jointly organized by the Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU) and the Centre for Applied Human Rights. This is a valuable opportunity for our MA students working on and interested in the impacts of conflict, violence and humanitarianism.
Location: Room LMB/002A, Heslington East
