LLST is in the process of developing and testing our first major open-access humanitarian training course, built around “The Day My Life Froze”, our simulation on urban-based protracted refugee crises from middle-income countries.
This five-day course will prepare prospective and current humanitarian workers to perform modern, critical humanitarian work, by:
- providing a comprehensive overview of the legal framework governing refugees and IDPs
- introducing participants to critical theoretical approaches to refugee response
- reviewing SPHERE standards and the SDGs
- exploring the political and social motivations of a range of stakeholders, including refugees, host populations, local governments, donors, and various INGO and UN bodies
- developing hard skills in Project Cycle Management and Monitoring and Evaluation
- critically engaging with humanitarian assumptions, practices, and norms, including big data, siloing, isolationism, and encampment
Look for the first course delivery of “The Day My Life Froze: Critical Skill-building for Humanitarians” in early 2019.
If you would like to participate in pre-course trials or to have us contact you when the first delivery is scheduled, contact us at email@example.com.
