Humanitarianism In Haiti: Visions and Practice

Durham, North Carolina -Duke University Haiti Lab http://sites.fhi.duke.edu/humanitarianisminhaiti/ WHEN    April 11-12, 2013 IJDH Director Brian Concannon will be speaking on a panel Friday, April 12 from 10:00 am-12:30 pm, answering questions about the role of the international community, accountability of NGOs, what American citizens can do to contribute, and much more.  Humanitarianism in Haiti: Visions and Practice seeks to bring together grassroots activists and donors, international NGO workers and theorists to critically assess both the aims of humanitarian and development aid and the efficacy of aid design and delivery. By creating a horizontal space to cut through the sometimes competing agendas of different actors, the conference hopes to foster more honest and practical dialogue. Through these conversations we anticipate capturing a more comprehensive picture of the politics and on-the-ground challenges shaping the reconstruction effort in Haiti, and lay the groundwork for action that more effectively addresses Haitian-defined priorities.
