The World Conference of Humanitarian Studies (WCHS) 2009 will be held 4-8 February 2009 in Groningen, the Netherlands. "It will be the first time that scholars and practitioners from all over the world
will convene and discuss such a broad range of issues pertaining to humanitarian crises and humanitarian action."

You can find information, register and submit a panel proposal at

Panel proposals are being accepted now and will be reviewed up until June 1; those who have submitted proposals will be notified as to whether their panel proposal has been accepted or not.

Panels should address one of the
following domains:
-- the causes, dynamics and effects of humanitarian crises (conflict and/ or natural disaster);
-- the politics and discourses of humanitarian crises;
-- the responses to crises, including local coping practices as well as political, military and humanitarian interventions;
-- the dynamics of humanitarian response policies, programs and organizations;
-- the processes of rehabilitation, and the linkages with development, peacebuilding, and security.
-- the legal issues pertaining to humanitarian affairs.
-- the experiences and lifeworlds of refugees and internally displaced people, and the refugee regimes towards them.

"We encourage panels that reflect the interactive nature of the conference and are jointly organised by two people or institutions that represent: different academic disciplines; or a combination of
academic and implementing agencies, as well as collaboration of institutes of different geographic regions."

Paper proposals will be accepted AFTER June 1.

I like very much the idea of calling for a world humanitarian conference, because there is too many people waiting for some kind of help. I hope you can find good results and can make a program that can colaborate with different geographic regions.
