Focusing on a wide range of humanitarian issues, the programme offers a thorough investigation of the agents of change in the humanitarian field.
It brings together the disciplines of public and global health, political science, international relations, history, epidemiology, disaster risk management and peacebuilding, as well as the expertise of academics and leading practitioners.
