This unit is an enhanced Cloud (online) unit consisting of four modules.  The introduction provides an overview of the history and development of humanitarian assistance.

Finally, we will critically discuss some of the dilemmas faced by the humanitarian sector. Through the use of case studies and interaction with humanitarian experts from around the world, we will examine the importance of ethical practice to successful humanitarian outcomes.   This will include the study of relevant case studies across geographical and cultural contexts.
