As part of the Mapping Digital Humanitarianism project we are planning a workshop in London, UK. Through the workshop we aim to establish a global network of scholars, development practitioners, digital developers and policy-makers working on digital humanitarianism.

The workshop will combine case studies and roundtable discussions with a mapathon (‘mapping marathon’). The mapathon will deploy the data emerging from the discussions to actively illustrate the main topics arising from digital humanitarianism and will be virtually open world-wide to anyone with a laptop, internet connection and interest in participating.

The workshop will be organised around three thematic areas:

Data: examining how public and private institutions make use of data science to support decision-making and resource allocation in humanitarian work and confront law and policy challenges emergent in this context.

Trust and Governance: investigating how digital platforms are decentring and reshaping the governance of humanitarian assistance and their implications for generalised, particularised and institutionalised forms of trust.

Resilience and Resistance: analysing how digital humanitarianism can engender resilience and/or resistance. More detailed information about the schedule, speakers and how to participate will be published in January 2019.


Schedule, list of confirmed speakers and information on how to participate will be published on our website humanitarianism.digital in January 2019.
