Humanitarian Alternatives launched its inaugural issue. Fondation Mérieux, the French Red Cross Fund, the Action Against Hunger Foundation and the Handicap International Foundation collaborated to initiate and support this bilingual humanitarian journal with an international scope.
The journal will be published three times a year with each issue devoted to a specific topic. This first edition focuses on the Ebola virus and what it reveals about the humanitarian sector.
The ambition of Humanitarian Alternatives is to bring together researchers and humanitarian stakeholders to reflect upon and create a more dynamic exchange on current practices and development within the humanitarian sector. Universities, including the Université du Québec à Montréal and the University of Lyon, are also contributing to the project.
