HUMA and FIFE launch cooperation initiative on Ethical Humanitarianisms
The Friedensau Institute for Evaluation (FIFE), at the Friedensau Adventist University in Germany, and the Institute for Humanities in Africa (HUMA) at the University of Cape Town in South Africa are pleased to announce the launch of a new project on Ethical Humanitarianisms starting from March 2021. The project is focused on addressing the ethical quandaries that underpin humanitarian work in Africa, asking how to build more ethical humanitarian interventions in a world of conflicting ethics. The collaborative project is launched within the framework of expanding cooperation between the two Institutes.
The project is led by Kwaku Arhin-Sam (FIFE) and Divine Fuh (HUMA). It starts with a monthly roundtable discussion and workshop series, accompanied by podcasts, video clips/videocast series, policy commentaries, public engagement, and academic publications. The research programme to be launched within this framework will involve scholars, policymakers and various actors and stakeholders in the humanitarian sector.
