ALNAP's Study on operational humanitarian leadership will allow the humanitarian sector to develop a better understanding of what effective leadership looks like, to identify the determinants of good leadership and ways in which it can be fostered.

The Study based on modelling excellence, through 11 case studies of effective leadership, in different crises, different countries and at different levels. The findings are related to the wider literature and current thinking on leadership, and compared with research on leadership in other sectors.

Our recommendations are made for humanitarian agencies, individual leaders and the sector as a whole.
