Critical Choices: Triaging Humanitarian Priorities

16. Okto­ber – 17. Okto­ber 2024 

Hybrid 26th Human­i­tar­i­an Con­gress Berlin

26th Human­i­tar­i­an Con­gress Berlin: „Crit­i­cal Choic­es: Triag­ing Human­i­tar­i­an Priorities”
16–17 Octo­ber, 2024
Ura­nia Berlin
In-per­son and online

We are excit­ed to announce that the Human­i­tar­i­an Con­gress Berlin will be back with two days of in-per­son and hybrid ses­sions, work­shops, and our exhi­bi­tion and exchange area – the Human­i­tar­i­an Forum. Whether you are a cur­rent, for­mer or future human­i­tar­i­an expert, politi­cian, thought leader, media pro­fes­sion­al or researcher inter­est­ed in dri­ving pos­i­tive change through crit­i­cal debate, this event is for you.

This year’s pro­gramme will revolve around nav­i­gat­ing human­i­tar­i­an needs against the back­drop of diverse crises. The rise of author­i­tar­i­an regimes, a glob­al shift towards right-wing pol­i­tics, the cli­mate cri­sis, the sys­tem­at­ic ero­sion of human­i­tar­i­an prin­ci­ples and attacks on human­i­tar­i­ans accom­pa­nied by dras­tic bud­get cuts amongst oth­ers are putting unprece­dent­ed pres­sure on human­i­tar­i­an actors, fur­ther politi­cis­ing them and endan­ger­ing their safety.

The con­gress will explore how, besides grow­ing pri­or­i­ties in a mul­ti­po­lar world, a coher­ent vision for human­i­tar­i­an inter­ven­tion as well as for­ward-think­ing approach­es such as the use of AI in human­i­tar­i­an action, antic­i­pa­to­ry action, and the long-term con­se­quences of crises can be applied to seek solu­tions for equi­table, resilient, and sus­tain­able futures.

For fur­ther updates and details, vis­it our web­site and fol­low us on X @humconberlin (#HCBer­lin). An offi­cial invi­ta­tion includ­ing the online reg­is­tra­tion will fol­low in due course.

We would be delight­ed to wel­come you to the Human­i­tar­i­an Con­gress Berlin 2024.

This event is host­ed by Médecins Sans Fron­tières / Doc­tors with­out Bor­ders, Médecins du Monde / Doc­tors of the World, and the Ger­man Red Cross, in part­ner­ship with Oxfam Germany.
