About this event
The role of humanitarian action and peacebuilding in pandemics and other global transversal issues
The COVID-19 pandemic is more than a health crisis; it is an economic crisis, a humanitarian crisis, a security crisis, and a human rights crisis. This crisis has highlighted severe fragilities and inequalities within and among nations. Coming out of this crisis will require a whole-of-society, whole-of-government and whole-of-the-world approach driven by compassion and solidarity.
In this live webinar, academics from Oxford Brookes University and The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) will come together to discuss the role of humanitarian action and peacebuilding in pandemics and other global issues such as climate change. Joined by students from the MA Humanitarian Action and Peacebuilding course, you will hear first hand accounts of how practice-based research and training from Oxford Brookes and UNITAR has helped practitioners deliver humanitarian aid, build resilience or transform conflict to search for equitable and sustainable responses to complex emergencies.
Join us for this live discussion and learn more about the MA Humanitarian Action and Peacebuilding programme.
