Topics examined include: the discourse of 'professionalisation' in the sector and its implications for education, training and capacity-building of workers and volunteers in the humanitarian sector; aid worker resilience, well-being and self-management; organisational change, learning and innovation; issues related to operational management in the field; people-management in the humanitarian sector; and safety and security of humanitarian workers.
