Live online consultation: Principles for Ethical Humanitarian Innovation
PHAP’s consultation event focused a set of draft principles that had been developed following a workshop at Oxford University on 27 April 2015, convened by the Humanitarian Innovation Project at the Refugee Studies Centre at Oxford. Workshop participants included the ICRC, UNHCR, UNICEF, OCHA, the World Humanitarian Summit secretariat, DFID, Save the Children, the Humanitarian Innovation Fund, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, and a range of academics.
Some of the main points included:
- The evident need for such a set of principles in order to both manage risks and encourage innovation in the humanitarian sector.
- The importance of keeping the principles open.
