International Center for Humanitarian Affairs

Policy and Advocacy

The policy and advocacy unit seeks to build strategic relationships with governments, humanitarian organizations and other key partners to increase awareness, action, and resources devoted to humanitarian assistance. Advocacy encompasses raising the awareness of the beneficiaries, creation or reform of policies, but also seeking effective implementation and enforcement of policies. Our work also revolves around reducing research outcomes into narratives that can be disseminated among key stakeholders. In particular, we create opportunity for continuous dialogue between policy makers, practitioners and academics in developing sound policy proposals. Our delivery tools including development of policy briefs, conducting policy roundtables and regular review of decisions of key actors including parliamentarians.

What we do

We invest in research that builds evidence of what works most effectively to save lives and protect the most vulnerable when crises occur as well as supporting innovative efforts that address knowledge gaps in the humanitarian system.
