Humanitarian horizons: new challenges, new actors, new partnerships
On 12 November, Groupe URD will be taking part in the conference to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Islamic Relief France, which will be held at the Palais du Luxembourg. We will be acting as moderator at the 2nd round table: “Muslim charity organizations and western humanitarian organizations: from dialogue to action”, from 2pm to 3.30pm.
After 20 years of action in the aid sector, Islamic Relief France has invited key figures to discuss the next 20 years of humanitarian action. How will the humanitarian sector meet the challenges posed by the upheavals taking place in the world? After the Arab Spring, what are the new geopolitical issues facing international and local actors? As a field operator, a creative force and a link between humanitarian actors in the North and the South, Islamic Relief France is launching the debate.
