Humanitarian Innovation Project

The Refugee Studies Centre's Humanitarian Innovation Project (HIP) was officially launched today.  Its aim is to "improve the innovation process within the humanitarian world" by developing "a methodology for bottom-up humanitarian innovation, which can be applied at the field level."  More information about the project can be found on its newly created web site.  Visitors can also explore the HIP Database, which records information about a wide variety of  humanitarian solutions in such a way as to better assess their potential for innovation.

Other sections of the web site provide access to news about the project and other humanitarian innovations, the project's blog, and its resources.  The latter category includes videos/podcasts, background reading, and the latest publications from the HIP team, specifically:
  • Humanitarian Innovation and Refugee Protection, Working Paper, no. 85 (RSC, Nov. 2012) [text]
  • Refugee Livelihoods and the Private Sector: Ugandan Case Study, Working Paper, no. 86 (RSC, Nov. 2012) [text]
Finally, you can follow developments at HIP via its Facebook page and Twitter feed.
