The benefits and risks of UN integration for humanitarian space have been intensely debated for many years. The issue has proved highly contentious with many humanitarian staff sceptical that UN integration can benefit humanitarian action. Others stress the need for enhanced coherence and highlight the positive experiences of UN integration.
This event will launch the joint HPG/Stimson Center report 'UN integration and humanitarian space'- commissioned by the UN Integration Steering Group.
