A key feature of the Humanitarian Encyclopedia is its living character: we recognize all stakeholders, at the individual and organizational levels, as valid sources of knowledge.
The Humanitarian Encyclopedia has two main governance bodies: the Advisory Board and the Scientific Committee.
Both bodies play a key role in orienting, discussing, nourishing, challenging and disseminating the research results.
The Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action (CERAH), Geneva’s academic platform for humanitarian action, has a leading role in the Encyclopedia project. CERAH is a partner of choice for a collaborative project aiming to deliver an interdisciplinary, intercultural, multi-sectoral and multi-thematic approach to analysing complexity in – and of – humanitarian action and the humanitarian ecosystem.
