HCRI’s novel research configuration combines the expert insights of leading researchers across applied medicine and humanities disciplines, in partnership with non-governmental organisations and other collaborators.

There is a vital and growing need for greater research to drive and inform humanitarian and conflict practices in the field. Our programme of research allows us to explore the circumstances in which knowledge has been generated, applied and its consequences.  Our strategy revolves around three core themes that transcend disciplinary boundaries to examine what the United Nations calls the ‘triple nexus’ - humanitarian response, development and peace.
