Principles for Ethical Humanitarian Innovation

These principles were drafted based on an initial World Humanitarian Summit workshop convened at the University of Oxford on 27 April 2015 by the Humanitarian Innovation Project based at the Refugee Studies Centre. The workshop included the participation of ICRC, UNHCR, UNICEF, OCHA, the World Humanitarian Summit secretariat, DFID, Save the Children, the Humanitarian Innovation Fund, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, as well as a range of academics with expertise in areas such as medical ethics, business ethics, humanitarian ethics, innovation management, and humanitarian practice. Funding support for the workshop was provided by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) & the University of Oxford’s ESRC Impact Acceleration Account and Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF).
