Once a month you can enter a unique virtual space for professionals around the world to engage with a global panel of experts and practitioners on current dilemmas in humanitarian action.

Get our weekly analysis of current trends and challenges in the humanitarian sector, and explore practitioner perspectives through our Guest Blog series.

Read an in-depth analysis of key legal and policy issues facing humanitarian professionals and explore how they impact your work in the field. 

Broaden your understanding of the fundamental concepts of humanitarian action through free, interactive, self-paced e-learning modules. In each module you will brush up on the basics, hear from an expert, and then dive into operational dilemmas.

Join us for an immersive, case-based training where you'll exchange experience and practice with colleagues across agencies about international humanitarian law and humanitarian protection and see first hand why these frameworks are so essential to effective operations.
