Why I am doing a PhD at HCRI
I have worked in collaboration with HCRI on numerous projects since 2014, and I see it as the UK's leading centre for the study of humanitarianism. I have great respect for HCRI's academics and for their critical engagement with the world of humanitarian practice. And, in Bertrand Taithe, I have a supervisor with expertise on humanitarian histories and their relevance to humanitarian practice today.
