NOHA Spring School in Humanitarian Action 2018 / Vilnius

Humanitarian Action today has to take into account political, cultural, legal and health dimensions. One more time, the NOHA Spring School will be conducted by university staff and field actors in order to provide professionals with a global approach.

The Spring School became a part of the network’s short-term courses programme and is annually organised by Vilnius University in partnership with another European university. This year, the Spring School will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania, and it is co-organised by the University of Warsaw. For both universities this will be also an occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their membership with NOHA. The Spring School aims at training those who are involved in humanitarian action and feel the need to upgrade their basic knowledge and skills and more generally those who are willing to join the humanitarian action.

Target audience: Civil servants, staff from local, international and civil society organisations, and more generally those who are involved in HA and feel the need to upgrade their basic knowledge and skills.
Language: English
Number of participants: 20-25
Draft programme is available here.
