Over the past 17 years, HRG has become the world’s leading research group in the field of humanitarian operations management. We have worked with more than 20 humanitarian organisations, from headquarters to program level, and from Geneva to Nairobi. In addition to the research outputs quantified above, we have contributed the following to the humanitarian operations management field:  

  • Over a decade of experience in MBA, Executive, and PhD teaching on humanitarian operations

  • Initiator of colleges in humanitarian operations at POMS and EURO Professional Societies, and sections at major journals

  • The first three special issues in top journals on the subject

  • Organiser of conferences and workshops, e.g., the EURO HOpe conference and the Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference in collaboration with MIT and Georgia Tech

How We Work

 

Our aim is to do impactful practice-based research. This requires direct engagement with the humanitarian sector. We therefore maintain long term research partnerships with humanitarian organisarions. This gives us the contextual knowledge for developing evidence-based insights and solutions for the various challenges organisations face. It also allows us to close the research loop and to be involved in follow up or implementation steps. This is what a typical research partnership looks like:
