The Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies aims to promote and facilitate critical and relevant research on key humanitarian issues. The centre serves as a hub for research and policy discussion, and features a national network of scholars working on humanitarian issues from outside the three core institutions. It also features an extensive network of international humanitarian scholars. The centre is a joint CMI, NUPI and PRIO initiative.
