ICRC-HHI LAUNCH: Discussion Paper on Community Engagement in Armed Conflict
March 28, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Over the last decade, important progress has been made in setting up more systematic, predictable, and evidence-based two-way communication initiatives to better engage with, and be accountable to, people affected by natural disasters. However, the implications and opportunities around engaging with people in armed conflicts and other situations violence are not as well-known or documented.
To contribute towards filling this gap, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) are publishing a joint discussion paper: Engaging with people affected by armed conflicts and other situations of violence: Recommendations for humanitarian organizations and donors in the digital era.
Following a keynote address by ICRC President Peter Maurer and a brief presentation of the paper’s main findings and recommendations, an interactive panel will debate, with the audience, some of the paper’s critical topics.
