Certificate of Advanced Studies - People Management in Humanitarian Settings

CERAH - The Geneva Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action

The growing professionalization of the humanitarian sector has created new challenges for how humanitarian organisations manage their staff. The effective organisation of local and expatriate work forces in often difficult contexts demands high levels of expertise and competence.

Professionally trained human resource (HR) personnel have become indispensable for humanitarian organisations to address the needs of their employees, national and international, and of operations.

Skilled HR managers with specific knowledge of the humanitarian context can develop useful strategies to improve working environments and smooth delivery of projects. The growing need to make aid operations more relevant and accountable, to improve their quality and abide by the rules of good governance is also directly related to improved HR management techniques.
