Apply for our Professional Development Course on Humanitarian Security


The Center for African Studies at Howard University, with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Africa Bureau, is offering a 4-week professional development course on Humanitarian Security for practitioners and graduate students in Summer 2023.


International humanitarian security is a contested concept that has given rise to many debates over its meaning and application. The objectives of this course are three-fold. First, students will be familiarized with the major concepts, debates and challenges that exist in the field. Secondly, students will be introduced to a standard set of guidelines used by international humanitarian organizations to manage safety and security risks. Finally, students will be exposed to the practice of security risk management through a decision based simulation exercise drawn from a real world event.
Course Dates: July 11 – August 8, 2023
