The Center for Peace Studies (CPS) under South Asian Institute of Policy and Governance (SIPG) of North South University is going to organize a 10-week long certificate course titled: Humanitarianism, Policy, and Diplomacy. This course will provide a framework for the participants to help them better understand the role of state and non-state actors in responding to global disasters, crises, and tragedies by coming forward to render assistance to those in distress. It looks at the policies and politics of humanitarian crises as well as the need for protecting humanity. It also examines legal, moral, and ethical dimensions of global security of all human beings regardless of race, creed, and/or ethnic/political affiliation.
The participants will be students, who wish to include humanitarianism as part of their academic program, and professionals, (teachers, diplomats, journalists, NGO workers, etc.) who want to expand their knowledge about humanitarianism.
Faculty members from North South University, University of Hawaii, University of Western Sydney, specialists from International Organizations will be the trainers in this course. The course offers an opportunity to the participants to experience humanitarianism at the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar.
