Research objectives

Our goal is to foster debate and collaborative exchange among academia, policymakers, and practitioners to shape the research agendas of the global humanitarian and conflict response sectors.

To achieve this, we will:

  1. Continue to foster global research collaborations and partnerships through existing projects such as Researching the Impacts of Attacks on Health (RIAH), our work as a WHO Collaborating Centre and international academic partners.
  2. Further develop our interdisciplinary research, through multifaceted issues such as the impact of climate change on disaster-affected populations.
  3. Make our research more impactful by working alongside think tanks and policymakers and creating new channels for the sector such as the HCRI policy brief series, the Journal of Humanitarian Studies and our Manchester University Press book series
