Universities & Specialist Events
Our goal: continue to build awareness on inclusive humanitarian action within the next generation of humanitarian workers as well as to incorporate disability as a cross-cutting issue at specialist events.

The successfully initiated cooperation with the AKKON Hochschule Berlin and the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) in previous project phase continues in phase 3. We will strengthen the awareness and capacities of the next generation of humanitarian actors through:
Awareness raising guest lectures and module support on inclusive humanitarian action for students of:
- the Bachelor programme “International Emergency and Disaster Relief” at the Akkon Hochschule
- the Network on Humanitarian Action (NOHA) Master programme “International Humanitarian Action” at the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV) at the Ruhr-University Bochum
The inclusion of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action has been increasingly recognized by German humanitarian actors. Yet, it is not sufficiently mainstreamed as a crosscutting human rights topic throughout the German humanitarian system. Therefore, we continue to raise awareness to the broad professional public to acknowledge the importance of equal protection of the rights of persons with disabilities in humanitarian emergencies.
Through our participation in specialist events, lectures, and panel discussions, we incorporate disability as a cross-cutting issue in the humanitarian narrative. Additonally, we support the organizers of such events on accessibility measures.
