The humanitarian field is rapidly expanding and changing. The growing number of people in need, as well as humanitarian workers and budgets, has resulted in massive growth and demand on the system. These shifts necessitate the development and implementation of new models of effective humanitarian assistance, as well as more capable humanitarian leaders.
Humanitarian Initiatives in Complex Emergencies Fellowship is an intensive professional development programme designed to prepare young humanitarian practitioners to address today’s humanitarian challenges as leaders in an evolving landscape.
In Nigeria, the causes of displacement are multifaceted and complex, and they frequently overlap. Since 2014, the militant Islamist group Boko Haram has caused significant displacement in the country’s marginalised north-east. Tensions in the central region have risen due to competition between pastoralists and farmers, culminating in significant levels of violence and displacement. Long-running ethnic conflict between Fulani pastoralists and Hausa farmers in northwestern Katsina, Sokoto, and Zamfara states also contributes to displacement. Every year, flooding displaces thousands of people.
Dataville Research is collaborating with a diverse team of humanitarian action practitioners from the International Association of Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection to deliver this programme. This fellowship’s theoretical aspects are informed by key leadership behaviours designed for practical application in a humanitarian response.
Women are strongly encouraged to apply to this programme because we are an equal opportunity and affirmative action organisation.
