Our Objectives

Global events over the past two decades indeed suggest that the world needs a humanitarian system capable of responding reliably, effectively and efficiently across a full range of emergencies. Whether people are suffering as a result of an earthquake in China or organized violence in Darfur, the humanitarian response system is expected to reach them in a timely and informed manner.

Global wealth suggests that it can; and, global morality says that it should. Success of humanitarian action depends upon political, technical and organizational factors. The practice of public health focuses on improving the technical and organizational capacities, but this course will display that political forces are equally essential for alleviating human suffering.

Deep problems of political distortion and perennial problems of agency performance and practice continue to compromise global, impartial and effective humanitarian action. This course examines efforts to provide humanitarian assistance and protection in war and disaster crises. It combines the theoretical with the possible, highlighting constraints to action from the perspective of the humanitarian agency and professional worker in the field. Key public health priorities—including the major causes of disease and death and how best to detect, prevent and treat them — are examined.

Particular attention is paid to human rights and humanitarian protection, including their nature, content, and linkages with public health assistance. Students will be exposed to current trends and debates, sides will be taken and defended, and the class will be enriched by the participation, contributions and challenges of the students.
