Purpose and Principles

The Humanitarian Congress Berlin brings together leading experts from medical, health, humanitarian and international organisations, politics, academia and media, as well as young professionals and students interested in humanitarian work from around the globe. The Humanitarian Congress Berlin aims to engage relevant actors in the humanitarian space and foster the public debate on key issues in humanitarian aid. It provides participants with a unique opportunity to share experiences, knowledge and ideas of humanitarian aid in an international and multi-disciplinary setting. The Humanitarian Congress Berlin has created, and fosters, a community with a shared interest in the major issues and challenges confronting humanitarian action today. It is our decided goal to include a diverse audience.

At the Humanitarian Congress Berlin we treat all people with respect and dignity and challenge any form of harassment, discrimination, intimidation, exploitation or abuse.
