Institute professors join CERAH faculty

From September, three Graduate Institute faculty members will be teaching in CERAH's Diploma of Advanced Studies in Humanitarian Action (DAS). Running over 13 weeks, the DAS covers the context of humanitarian action (historical, legal, geopolitical, ethical), humanitarian responses to specific issues (emergency-development, sociology of actors, health, political economy) and transversal issues such as vulnerability, anthropology and communication, giving participants the tools needed to analyse and understand responses to humanitarian emergencies today.

Prof Alessandro Monsutti, head of the Institute’s department of Anthropology and Sociology of Development, will teach Anthropology and Intercultural Aspects of Humanitarian Action. Dr Christophe Gironde, Senior Lecturer on Human and Social Development, will cover From Emergency to Development, while Prof Davide Rodogno, Head of the International History department will run Geopolitics and Humanitarian Action.

The three (pictured above with CERAH’s Doris Schopper and Verónica Foubert) join Institute colleague Prof Gilles Carbonnier, who has been in charge of CERAH's Political Economy of Humanitarian Crises course for many years.

The Geneva Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action (CERAH) is a joint centre of the Graduate Institute and University of Geneva.
