Protection: A Broken Promise?
The Humanitarian Congress Berlin is an international platform for exchanging information, experiences and ideas of humanitarian aid. Each year the Congress brings together experts from medical, humanitarian and international organisations, politics, media as well as a large number of students from different subject areas.
With around 700 participants and speakers from around the world in 2013, the Humanitarian Congress has established itselfas an important forum in the world of humanitarian aid. The congress offers a unique mix of medical and political keynote speeches and debates. Besides that, a number of workshops inform about the most recent (medical and logistical) developments in humanitarian assistance.
To meet the needs of a growing number of participants, the congress will - once again - be held at the premises of the Virchow-Klinikum in Berlin-Wedding. This year's main theme is “Protection: A Broken Promise?".
