Humanitarian evacuations have always been a complex operation used sparingly. However, in recent years, the intensity of certain conflicts contributed to a greater use of this measure. To this extent, the Global Protection Cluster, led by the UNHCR, has been attempting to draft and disseminate Minimum Standards… with limited success.
A new issue of Humanitarian Alternatives has just been released ! With a focus on forced migration, this third and last issue of 2016 offers greater and renewed content on topics such as the World Humanitarian Summit or the European refugee crises.
The World Humanitarian Summit presents a critical opportunity to ensure that humanitarian action recognises and addresses the needs and rights of persons with disabilities.
The second issue of Humanitarian Alternatives was released in May 2016, just days before the opening of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS). Drafted to generate and feed the debate, it was largely distributed during the Summit and is now freely available online.
