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.

    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…

    There’s a reason that companies are doing better than humanitarians when it comes to understanding diversity.

    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. We wait to see who shows up, share a few passive aggressive whispers when the white-man-count tips the scales and then take to twitter. Fists shaking thro…

    Going about it the wrong way: US ‘Humanitarian’ aid in Venezuela

    By Henry Storey, intern at Humanitarian Advisory Group, 2019 Despite being partly correct in arguing that Venezuela’s dire humanitarian crisis is largely the making of the Nicolás Maduro regime, US efforts to resolve the crisis are counterproductive. By using aid as a tool to undermine Maduro’s rule…

    Australia’s drought: the disaster at our doorstep

In one hand you have multigrain and in the other hand you have wholemeal. But there are so many other choices; white, five seed, sourdough …

    By Bridgette Hogan, intern at Humanitarian Advisory Group Is it the role of international humanitarian aid organisations to prepare communities for and respond to the devastating impacts of climate change? Is there a space for the humanitarian sector to actively engage in recognising and limiting it…
