Ethical Humanitarian and Development Practice in Urban Refugee Response

A Two-Day Simulation-Based Professional Development Course

“I asked UNHCR for help. They told me, ‘if you don’t like it, you can go to Zaatari [Camp].’ I said: How can we live [in this city]? We can’t work, you don’t give us money. ‘You can go to Zaatari,’ they said.”

Syrian Interview Respondent, Irbid, Jordan, quoted in Stevens, 2016

The course re-centres the human subjects of international interventions in the minds of experienced humanitarian and development workers, with a focus on the humanizing the “humanitarian-development nexus”.
