The congress brings together leading experts from humanitarian, non-governmental and international organizations, universities and media. The Humanitarian Congress is also an international platform for the exchange of information, experience and ideas related to humanitarian help.

The Congress builds on last year tradition of discussions on wide range of issues concerning humanitarian aid.

Subject of the congress:
Humanitarian Aid: Independence In Danger?

Czech and foreign practitioners and researchers from a multitude of backgrounds will present their experiences and concerns through a series of panel discussions and workshops.

Discussion topics include: Resilience: New Paradigm Or the Old One in a New Suit?, Syria – Humanitarian Aid In Armed Conflict, New Technologies, Development Of Humanitarian Aid In European Context, Sudden Onset Versus Slow Onset Disasters, Czech And Student Panel.

The goal of the Congress is to increase general public, students and humanitarian and development workers awareness of humanitarian aid.
