February 9, 2021

The field of international humanitarian relief has transformed remarkably from when I began my career after graduating from Humboldt. Relief workers are far more professional and prepared than in the past. Formal education is available in both general and technical fields, enabling workers to go to work well prepared to deliver needed services. Yet aspects of the humanitarian world remain mired in western-oriented structures that limit participation of local organizations, undermine effective response, and limit innovation. My career in humanitarian assistance spans 40 years. I began with delivering relief food during a civil war in Uganda and included oversight of all humanitarian relief for USAID. The talk will examine my career and my views on the current state of humanitarian education from my current vantage point as a professor at Tufts University.
