Humanitarian and Development

The Humanitarian and Development Programme at IRIS was developed to help those in the welfare sector deal with the increasingly complex humanitarian environment and the new challenges facing international aid and cooperation. The Programme’s research activities are focused on strategic planning, geopolitics, international relations and organisational leadership. Its work analyses critical changes in the humanitarian system, their major driving forces and leveraging these changes strategically.

IARAN - The Inter-Agency Regional Analysts Network
The IARAN operating model is to create an analytical capacity in humanitarian organizations that can exploit both qualitative and quantitative methods, tools and approaches to drive strategic foresight for the sector. It is defined by several key elements, its partnership approach (which it is hoping to grow), innovation in tools and methods, and continuous learning.
