Aims and scope

Humanitarian action is a fast-paced field that demands a modern online journal that is multi-disciplinary, responsive, timely, and open access. The Journal of International Humanitarian Action provides a forum for practitioners, policy-makers and academics to highlight contemporary challenges, to critically reflect upon current practices, and to ultimately advance the field of humanitarian action.

A Gold Open Access journal, free for all authors

This journal benefits from 100% sponsorship. Papers that are accepted following peer review will be published and no article-processing charge (APC) will be charged to the author.

Call for Papers: Special Collection on Humanitarian Technology

New Content Item​​​​​​​

Humanitarian actors have long adopted and adapted technology to improve aid delivery and protection practices. But beyond asking what technology does for humanitarian action, this Collection will explore what it does to humanitarian action. Topics may include: the role and place of humanitarian principles with respect to technology; responsible data management and use of "state security technologies"; biometrics in refugee management, food aid, and medical humanitarianism; cybersecurity challenges; the use of drones, robotics, and 3-D printers; and technology's impact on donor expectations. Read more, submit your paper here, and choose "Humanitarian Technology" from the Thematic Series drop-down menu.
