On 5 November, GISF held the Behind the Scenes: Safe Humanitarian Action webinar, an event for students, faculty, and young professionals focused on international development and humanitarian assistance studies.
Are you interested in how humanitarians deliver aid to those in need within complex and challenging contexts? Or maybe what different career options might exist within the aid sector? Watch our panel of experts who will discuss the profession of security risk management in the humanitarian sector and what opportunities exist. In a world that is seeing increasing attacks against aid workers it is essential to understand the role that security risk management plays in enabling safe operations and why it should be on every humanitarian’s radar.
