Humanitarian action has rarely been more essential than today: The number of people in need worldwide is rising year by year. Never have more people been on the run. Effective humanitarian assistance can mean the difference between life and death for millions of men, women and children. At the same time humanitarian action, actors, and the humanitarian principles are under attack and at risk of being undermined or underfunded. The first German humanitarian think tank, the Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) will deal with these challenges: It will engage in independent analysis of humanitarian affairs, initiate profound debates and raise awareness for humanitarian action in the general public.
