20th Humanitarian Congress Berlin
4 October - 5 October
NO MORE EXCUSES – ADVOCATING FOR HUMAN DIGNITY IN TIMES OF CRISIS
This year’s agenda revolves around current political trends and their implications for the most vulnerable, the people at the core of humanitarian work. How can we successfully advocate for action that supports the people most in need, recognising their fundamental human rights and irrespective of political gain? Do we need to give advocacy priority in light of the changing political climate? How can we ensure that our work has the interests of the people at its centre? What are the changes that are needed in order to be able to deliver an inclusive humanitarian response? How can we ensure that each perspective is being heard and empowered? What do we need to prevent abuse directed at the people we serve and the people we work with? How can we involve actors from related fields, combining our strengths to form a stronger movement? What could effective advocacy for human dignity look like in this polarized political environment?
