Is Feminist Foreign Policy a Roadmap to a De-colonial Future?

The number of humanitarian crises is constantly increasing. At the same time, financial resources are becoming less and less sufficient to provide emergency aid in line with needs. The international humanitarian system, in which Germany plays a central role as the second largest bilateral donor, is under massive pressure.

In light of the upcoming cuts in the German humanitarian aid budget, Oxfam Germany and the Centre for Humanitarian Action invited to a panel discussion to discuss solutions:

Can shifting resources to local and national organisations make emergency response more efficient and thus help mitigate the growing funding gap?
How can the German government integrate the goal of better funding for local humanitarian actors into the overall implementation of its feminist foreign policy?

On the panel:

Chilande Kuloba-Warria, Managing Director, Warande Advisory Centre and co-author of the study “Passing the buck

Sabine Eismann, German Federal Foreign Office – Division for International Humanitarian Organisations and Multilateral Policy on Humanitarian Assistance

Naomi Tulay-Solanke, Executive Director, Community Healthcare Initiative

Welcome address by: Serap Altinisik, CEO Oxfam Germany e.V.

Moderation: Ralf Südhoff, Director, Centre for Humanitarian Action e.V.
