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. The first module explores the history of humanitarianism followed by the principles, theories, and values that inform current practices in the field in the second module. In the third module, we will learn about the various actors involved in the humanitarian system and analyse the emerging trends. 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.
