International Humanitarian Studies Association: Conference call for papers

Deadline extended: 30 June 2018

The 5th bi-annual IHSA conference, entitled “(Re-)Shaping Boundaries in Crisis and Crisis Response”, will take place in The Hague, The Netherlands from 27 to 29 August 2018.

Crisis and humanitarianism has always been about boundaries. The classic view of a crisis is an exceptional moment, bounded in time and space. Humanitarian action was therefore seen as a necessarily limited endeavor which has a narrow but principled focus on saving lives and alleviating suffering. Setting clear boundaries around crisis were meant to distinguish crisis from normality and legitimate extraordinary measures to accommodate its effects.
