Ahead of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS), due to be held in Istanbul  on 22 and 23 May, the Network on Humanitarian Action (NOHA) has provided a wealth of expert and research-based recommendations and policy positions towards the WHS in its report ONE HUMANITY: Shared Responsibility. A European Perspective. Based on the discussions and results of a series of roundtables organized by NOHA and the European Commission across Europe in February and March 2016, the report aims to offer concrete policy and practical advice to the European Union and the broader humanitarian community in the build-up to the Summit.

Featuring inputs from academics, practitioners, and youth involved in humanitarian action, the report also benefited from contributions of NCHS researchers Maria Gabrielsen Jumbert and Kristin Bergtora Sandvik. Jumbert and Sandvik attended the Northern European Roundtable held in the Swedish city of Uppsala in February 2016 and, together with fellow Northern European-based experts, have drafted and endorsed a number of policy and practical recommendations.
