This year, we are bringing together the humanitarian community of Berlin, Germany and beyond. Whether you are a current, former or future humanitarian expert, practitioner, politician, thought leader, media professional, researcher or passionate about humanitarian issues, this event is meant for anyone interested in learning from or driving the debates around “Out of Sight, Out of Mind? Unveiling Attention and Neglect in Humanitarian Action and Global Health”.

With the ambition to unveil as many of the uncomfortable structures, dilemma and relevant facets to the topic as possible, the Humanitarian Congress Berlin will embark on the complexities, drivers and biases inherent in attention and neglect — by media, politics, humanitarians and society at large. We will explore how attention influences humanitarian engagement in certain contexts, perpetuates inequalities and pre-sets possible avenues of likely humanitarian assistance.

We are excited that the Humanitarian Congress Berlin will be back with two days of in-person sessions, partly live-streamed, two stages and our fair and exchange area – the Humanitarian Forum.
