Humanitarian Congress Berlin 2024

Critical Choices: Triaging Humanitarian Priorities Please save the date and join us for the 26th Humanitarian Congress Berlin, taking place on 16-17 October 2024 (in-person and online) at Urania Berlin, An der Urania 17, 10787 Berlin.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.
