Humanitarian Diplomacy

Course Overview

This course is designed to provide students with two critical frameworks for accessing and operating in humanitarian crises. On the one hand, it explores official, state-level (Track I) bi- or multi-lateral diplomatic efforts to prevent, mitigate, or resolve humanitarian crises. On the other hand, it explores the unofficial (Track II) and micro-level initiatives of humanitarian negotiations engaged in by non-state actors to obtain access to crisis-affected populations, facilitate dialogue among parties to conflict or rivals for resources, and even broker truces, peace agreements, or other arrangements with the potential to reduce human suffering in Complex Humanitarian Emergencies.
