The University of Manchester

Our multidisciplinary MA Humanitarianism and Conflict Response master’s course focuses on response to crises originating from both conflict-zones and natural disasters.

Bringing together the study of medicine and humanities, the course provides an inclusive approach that mirrors the reality of aid operations and informs the reflexive processes of both analytical and applied disciplines.

You will be benefit from being able to draw on an exceptionally wide breadth of disciplinary traditions and research expertise.

Study at HCRI

HCRI at The University of Manchester is inspired by the need to conduct rigorous research and to support postgraduate training on the impact and outcomes of contemporary and historical crises.

Directed by Dr Rony Brauman (former President of MSF France, Associate Professor at L’Institut d’Études Politiques (Paris), and Director of Research at the MSF Foundation, Paris), HCRI is widely recognised as being a leading international research institute focusing on the study of humanitarianism, conflict response and peacebuilding.

Our work is driven by a desire to inform and support policy and decision makers, to optimise joint working between partner organisations, and to foster increased understanding and debate within the field.

Bringing together the disciplines of medicine and the humanities (including international relations and political science) to achieve these goals, HCRI aims to facilitate improvements in crisis response on a global scale whilst providing a centre of excellence for all concerned with emergencies, conflicts and peace.

In offering a range of postgraduate courses, we embrace this opportunity to develop a scholarly and professional agenda for humanitarians and peacebuilders around the world.
