The first and foremost goal of humanitarian aid is to save lives. But what if humanitarian action unintentionally lengthens the duration or becomes part of a conflict? During this second edition of Hot Humanitarian Topics, we discuss the unintended consequences of humanitarian aid during the conflict in South-Sudan and other African countries with the South Sudanese scientist Jok Madut Jok.
During this edition of Humanitarian Hot Topics, Jok Madut Jok, the executive director of the South Sudanese think tank Sudd Institute, will give an introduction addressing the unintended consequences of humanitarian aid in South Sudan and other African countries. His keynote speech is followed by a discussion between him and speakers from the humanitarian sector.
- Ton Huijzer will give an introduction to the issue from a humanitarian perspective.
- Other speakers will be announced shortly.
About the series ‘Humanitarian Hot Topics’
KUNO & Humanity House organise the series ‘Humanitarian Hot Topics’. For each edition they invite a speaker with an outspoken vision on much discussed hot topics within the humanitarian sector, such as migration, #metoo and localisation. After a short plea, the speaker will go into dialogue with the speakers from the humanitarian sectors and the audience. These series are made possible through the financial support of ten different humanitarian emergency aid organisations.
There’s an €8.00 entrance fee for this event
