Launch Event: Operational Humanitarian Leadership- ALNAP study
Date: 9th June 2011
Location: Overseas Development Institute, London
Humanitarian leadership is currently at the forefront of debates on humanitarian performance and accountability. At the same time, the challenges of leadership continue to grow, with operational humanitarian leaders working in chaotic, often physically challenging and insecure environments. It is not surprising that leadership is seen as one of the most significant challenges facing the sector today, according to evidence from the ALNAP State of the Humanitarian System report published in 2010.
In response to the high level of interest in the issue, ALNAP is pleased to be publishing its study Leadership in Action: Leading effectively in Humanitarian Operations, written by Margie Buchanan-Smith. As one of the most researched topics in the business world, understandings of leadership have evolved over the past fifty years, yet there has been limited specific thinking about humanitarian leadership. ALNAP’s work combines thinking from outside the sector with case studies and interviews with operational humanitarian leaders in a range of crisis settings.
