Being accountable to people affected by armed conflicts
Over the last decade, humanitarian agencies have aspired to be more accountable to people affected by crises, but progress has been limited. Despite many global and institutional commitments and research on ways to increase engagement, meaningful participation with affected people is still often seen as an optional ‘add-on’ to programming activities.
This event draws on the International Committee of the Red Cross' new report on Engaging with People Affected by Armed Conflict and the Overseas Development Institute's Humanitarian Policy Group's research on Constructive Deconstruction. Panellists discuss the challenges and opportunities for humanitarian agencies in better engaging with affected communities in armed conflicts and violence.
Anahi Ayala Iacucci, Internews Senior Director for Humanitarian Programs, will be one of the speakers.
