Making data work for the humanitarian community

Impact: Policy, Society and culture


Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) research about humanitarian and conflict-related data has impacted on pivotal actors in the humanitarian sector. The research agendas were co-created with non-academic stakeholders to address key evidence gaps related to peacekeeping data in Darfur, the reporting of aid worker casualties, the use of data and technology in humanitarian response, and attacks on healthcare. The research has influenced advocacy and policy development in the UN system, among key organisations in the humanitarian sector, and at government levels in the UK and EU. It has also informed an Imperial War Museum-North (IWM-N) exhibition exploring the experiences of aid workers in conflict zones, visited by 4,637 people in its first month.
