Dear all, 

On behalf of Médecins Du Monde, the German Red Cross, the Berlin Chamber of Physicians and Médecins Sans Frontières as well as this year’s partner Oxfam, we would like to invite you to the second virtual Humanitarian Congress Berlin: ‘Aspiring towards global justice – a humanitarian imperative?’ on 18-21 October 2021  

Please find the preliminary programme and information on how to register on our website. 

 
Last year's experience has shown that the virtual format allows us to reach even more people, thereby making the congress more inclusive and accessible. In 2019 and 2020, we have discussed the consequences of the climate crisis and institutional discrimination in our sector. Both topics are too important to simply tick them off for the HCB 2021.  

What we see globally are growing instances of outcry and social movements. In situations of political oppression, economic injustices and state violence humanitarian action seems to hit a wall. The sector is on the brink of navigating its principles and practices in stormy waters.  

 

This year's topic offers a debate at the intersection of humanitarian action and global justice. None of them claims stand-alone solutions, but can complementarity offer a framework to better respond to political, social and economic causes of acute vulnerability and humanitarian need? The HCB 2021 wants to ask how the sector should position itself in light of challenges that transcend sectorial boundaries.  

 

We will address how humanitarian action responds to protests and social movements. Can the sector promote social change, or does it hinder transformation? The congress continues to focus on debating the decolonisation of global health with a particular focus on the humanitarian impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccine distribution. Following up from last year’s event, we will also deepen our conversations on the humanitarian consequences of the climate crisis and elaborate on how greener humanitarian activities look like. Moreover, we will discuss how courts take legal action in case of violations of international and human rights law. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  

We look forward to welcoming you at this year’s Humanitarian Congress Berlin.

 

With kind regards,
