Research and Reports on Localisation of Humanitarian Aid (København)

Since the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 called for humanitarian aid to be “as local as possible, as international as necessary”, there has been an increasing interest in exploring the notion of ‘localisation’. Many aid organisations, research institutes and think-tanks have engaged in different kinds of research initiatives, including organisation specific reports, as well as long-term and in-dpeth studies, developed with universities and academia. All these initiatives are important to learn from and they are key to informing how a localisation approach is best implemented in practice.

Save the Children Denmark is hosting an event Research and Reports on Localisation of humanitarian aid on Tuesday 3rd March 9.00 – 11.30 at Globalt Fokus Salen, Rysensteensgade 3, 1564 København V. The session aims at creating increased awareness of current research and reports on localisation and discuss how localisation practice can be increasingly informed by and build on new knowledge.
