The 2019 Asia Pacific Humanitarian Leadership Conference will bring together leading humanitarian thinkers from around the world to explore issues for humanitarian leaders in the Asia Pacific and fragile states. This is the opportunity for humanitarian practitioners, academics, government, non-government and private sector stakeholders to come together over three days of workshops, lectures, panels, case studies, and networking to debate and discuss some of the critical challenges and opportunities for the humanitarian system in the region and globally.

The aim of the 2019 Asia Pacific Humanitarian Leadership Conference is to critically reflect on the challenges facing good leadership in the humanitarian space and the future of humanitarian action to enable delegates to influence how humanitarian organisations and the system respond to the increasingly complex humanitarian context.

Conference participants will have access to key influencers in the humanitarian sector, the opportunity to build their professional network and hear from both practitioners and academics working in the field. This is your chance to contribute to a better and more sustainable humanitarian system in the Asia Pacific, as well as present lessons and ideas from around the globe.

The 2019 Asia Pacific Humanitarian Leadership Conference is proudly brought to you by the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership with the support of the IKEA Foundation.

The Conference reflects the hybrid nature of the Centre – the combination of humanitarian practice with academic rigour. This year’s theme is Humanitarian Leadership and the Future of Humanitarian Action. We are now accepting abstracts.
