Project Managing Humanitarian Aid

The programme unit at Manchester aims to develop professional skills in students and introduce them to the main concepts of, and barriers to, humanitarian aid projects in a complex world.

Through tackling a series of small-group projects, students study the concepts of stakeholder engagement and the interaction of economic, environmental, legal, political, social and technical aspects of setting up humanitarian aid projects. Students act as an inter-professional humanitarian aid team dealing with the challenges of enabling change in the context of natural and man-made disasters.
