Call for Panels for the 6th International Humanitarian Studies Conference

Every other year, the International Humanitarian Studies Association (IHSA) organises a conference on humanitarian studies. IHSA Conferences bring together a wide range of academics and practitioners that exchange knowledge on different topics within the field of humanitarian studies.

After Groningen, Boston, Addis Ababa, Istanbul and the Hague, the 6th International Humanitarian Studies Conference will be held on 3-5 November 2021 in Paris, France, in collaboration with Sciences Po, with a significant scientific implication of the Centre for International Studies (CERI) at Sciences Po. The Conference’s main theme will be:

New Realities of Politics and Humanitarianism: Between Solidarity and Abandonment

The IHSA has opened its Call for Panels, which runs until 15th June 2021. The IHSA invites panels that address the five following sub-categories into which the main theme has been divided:

  1. Health and the Environment
  2. Localising Humanitarian Studies
  3. Political Economy and Politics of Humanitarianism
  4. Technology and Innovation
  5. Migration, Displacement and Refugees

Read the full descriptions of the sub-categories on the IHSA Conference’s website.

The panels will be reviewed by a Scientific Committee consisting of IHSA board members, experts from Sciences Po, and invited external experts on the specific conference themes. Find out who is on the reviewing team per theme on this list.
