In light of the annual World Humanitarian Day on August 19th, the Harvard University Advanced Training Program on Humanitarian Action (ATHA) is launching a month-long ‘Innovation Series’. This is a series of short podcast discussions with professionals and experts on areas of innovative thinking and development in the humanitarian sector.
In the first episode of the series ATHA’s Julia Brooks speaks with Raquel Vazquez Llorente, Researcher at the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF). They discuss changes in the operational environment and security risks for humanitarian actors, organisational responses to humanitarian action in insecure settings, and the implications of new information and communications technologies for humanitarian acceptance.
Innovation Series – New Information Technologies and Humanitarian Security: An Interview with Raquel Vazquez Llorente is available also on iTunes.
