KUNO brings together humanitarian practitioners, academics, policymakers, and many more, for joint learning, reflection and debate. We organize expert meetings, working sessions for professionals, training and public debates. All of our events are cross-sectoral and organized in cooperation with our partners. KUNO has a special commitment to invite experts from the Global South to participate in thought exchange.

What do we do?

KUNO contributes to improved knowledge that leads to improved humanitarian action. KUNO facilitates reflection on new developments and existing principles. KUNO facilitates learning processes. Furthermore KUNO reaches out to an audience beyond the humanitarian community for cross-sectoral thought exchange.

Past activities of KUNO include: expert meetings on the emergency gap, cash based programming and the world humanitarian summit; public debates on survival strategies of affected populations in emergency situations, trends in humanitarian assistance and the localization agenda; policy debates with Members of Parliament; and workshops on the interlinkages of the grand bargain commitments.
