About this course

The Humanitarian Ethics and Principles in Practice module is run as two 60 minute sessions. The first session considers Humanitarian Ethics and aims to introduce participants to the challenge of ethical dilemma that is inherent in humanitarian response.

The second session builds upon the first and introduces the four Humanitarian Principles and the concept of ‘do no harm’ in humanitarian response. The module has a specific emphasis on the context of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response and encourages the participants to reflect on how their own personal ethics affect their decision making and actions in supporting the response.

Module objectives: 

  • Identify some of the ethical issues affecting humanitarian response.
  • Describe some of the different factors that influence ethical decision making in humanitarian response
  • Reflect on the impact of your own personal ethics and how these may affect your decisions in the current context of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response
  • Describe some of the common ethical concerns in humanitarian data management
  • List the four humanitarian principles and explain their meaning
  • Explain the importance of applying the four humanitarian principles in the provision of humanitarian assistance in the context of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response
  • Explain the principle of 'do no harm' in providing humanitarian assistance in the context of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response
