“We Need a New Humanitarianism” by Mukesh Kapila

Monday 6 February 2023, 20:00 - 22:00

Human desperation and vulnerability are increasing everywhere. Meanwhile, humanitarian aid has become big business and humanitarian agencies have mushroomed. However, trust in humanitarians has plummeted. So, what is going wrong in the global kindness sector? And what can we do to change it?

Mukesh Kapila has long international experience in humanitarianism and development, human rights, and global health. He has worked at senior level in several agencies of the United Nations system, World Health Organization and the Red Cross Red Crescent as well as heading the UK Government’s Conflict & Humanitarian Affairs function. He is now Emeritus Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs at the University of Manchester, and advisor to many bodies.  

Professor Kapila writes extensively including authoring two books about his practical experiences in a range of difficult crisis situations.  He will draw on his rich experience to reflect on the future of humanitarian work.
