CHA research fellow Sonja Hövelmann has written an introductory article about the humanitarian system in the journal Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte (APuZ). APuZ is a supplement of the newspaper “Das Parlament” and is published by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung).
The article describes how the humanitarian system is providing assistance to people who are in a humanitarian emergency as a result of disasters or crises. The text highlights how the increasing number and duration of crises pose major challenges to the system and its actors.
You can read the article in full length here (only in German).
