Francesco Michele took part into the workshop “Advancing Research on Protection in the context of humanitarian action”
The first University of Deusto-NOHA Seminar on Advancing Research on Protection in the Context of Humanitarian Action took place on the 7th and 8th of November 2018. During one and a half days, a bunch of academics, academic-practitioners and practitioners took part in a series of fruitful presentations, discussions and joint learning on the still uncharted field of protection within humanitarian action. Francesco Michele, Humanitarian and Protection Policy Expert at WeWorld GVC , participated as trainer: “It has been a pleasure to hold such in-depth discussions on protection and field work. It has been also a real acknowledgment for the hard work by our colleagues in the field”
The workshop had two parts. The first part provided an initial overview of global changes and current crisis trends and their implications for the protection of humanitarian action. It would have outlined the context to discuss in the following sessions different perspectives and theories that can improve understanding of protective action and protection challenges and opportunities as well as inform practices geared to enchancing humanitarian protection.
“It seems to us that in the current context of unprotection and increasing criminalization of the people seeking protection and of the people and organizations that help them, this programa and the UAI initiative are relevant” declared
Cristina Churruca Muguruza and Enrique Eguren Fernández, organizers of the event.
