The course is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of the international humanitarian aid in countries affected by a crisis (conflict, natural disaster). It gives a firsthand understanding of what is like to work under pressure in difficult context. It is based on both theoretical and practical knowledge in order to make the experience and learning applicable to the realities of the humanitarian sector. Students will hear firsthand experiences from people who have been on humanitarian field missions. Practical learning is at the heart of the course. The course uses interactive tools and scenario-based teaching (simulation exercises; role playing).
