The Journal of Humanitarian Affairs is an exciting, new open access journal hosted jointly by The Humanitarian Affairs Team at Save the Children UK, and Centre de Réflexion sur l’Action et les Savoirs Humanitaires MSF (Paris) and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at the University of Manchester. It contributes to current thinking around humanitarian governance, policy and practice with academic rigour and political courage.
The journal challenges contributors and readers to think critically about humanitarian issues that are often approached from reductionist assumptions about what experience and evidence mean. It covers contemporary, historical, methodological and applied subject matters and will bring together studies, debates and literature reviews. The journal engages with these through diverse online content, including peer reviewed articles, expert interviews, policy analyses, literature reviews and ‘spotlight’ features.
