About Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute

About us
The Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) is a leading global centre for the study of humanitarianism and conflict response, global health, international disaster management and peacebuilding.

Based at The University of Manchester in the UK, our work is driven by a desire to inform and support policy and decision makers, to optimise collaborations between partner organisations, and foster increased understanding and debate within the field.

Bringing together disciplines from medicine to the humanities, we research questions and issues related to what the United Nations calls the ‘triple nexus’ – humanitarian response, development and peace.  Our aim is to facilitate improvements in crisis response on a global scale.
Study with us
By bringing together medicine and humanities, our programmes offer an inclusive approach to humanitarian education that mirrors the reality of aid operations and informs both analytical and applied disciplines.

Our students benefit from an exceptionally wide breadth of disciplinary traditions and research expertise that incorporates the history, politics and social aspects of humanitarian and conflict issues, for a well-rounded appreciation of all issues.

What our students say
"The programme has widened my view and deepened my insight. Through discussion, group work, and reflective essay writing, I have learnt many issues to consider in humanitarian operations."
Sehyeon Kim,  Programme Co-ordinator, Korea International Cooperation Agency / MSc Humanitarian Practice student

"Studying at HCRI gave me opportunities to put into practice translating complex theories and concepts into accessible materials and presentations for a range of diverse audiences."
Anna Fraine,  Campaigns Officer, Catholic Development Agency / MA Humanitarianism and Conflict Response alumni
