Humanitarian Advisory Group

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Humanitarian Advisory Group integrates research, policy analysis and on-the-ground humanitarian and human rights experience to deliver quality, practical, evidence-based advisory services to Government, the United Nations, business, humanitarian organisations and other institutions working in conflict zones, disaster-affected areas, and fragile contexts. We draw on our experience to offer an independent practitioner-led perspective on humanitarian and human rights issues in conflict and crisis and lead Australia and the Asia Pacific region to think and engage in global debate and dialogue. Humanitarian Advisory Group is an independent Australian-based enterprise formed in 2012 in response to growing complexity of activity and diversity of actors in conflict settings, humanitarian emergencies and fragile contexts. Prompted by challenges to humanitarian principles and ambiguity over roles, responsibilities and boundaries of practice, we identify a need for greater thinking and analysis of humanitarian and human rights issues in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

    Strategy for Change: not just another agenda

    By Hannah Blackney Hot-topics like “diversity of thought” and “equality” seem to have become CEO headlines and policy fodder that allow major players to talk a big diversity game.

    Australia, the Pacific and the C-word: Is climate change a battleground or an opportunity for humanitarians?

    M Sattler, August 2019 Coal. Its omission from most things makes them better. The atmosphere, the holiday stockings of expectant children, I could go on. But its erasure from the recent Pacific statement on climate change at Australia’s demand is quite another story. One that paints a cautionary pic…

    M Sattler, 30 May There hasn’t been much analysis of diversity in humanitarian leadership, so we tend to do it ourselves. At conferences, mainly.
