Where Humanitarians Grow
The world of Humanitarian Action is growing and gaining recognition for its importance in the changing reality of globalization, information, technology, and cultural differences. These changes require individuals and organizations to make complex decisions in unstable contexts.

The school caters to a diverse group of professionals, providing knowledge, consultancy and practical tools to advance humanitarian relief efforts striving to the highest standards.
