The current structure of humanitarian research systems marginalizes Global South institutes. However, a recent study has shown that southern-led research has a number of comparative advantages, including an emphasis on issues that directly benefit crisis-affected populations.
This event featured researchers from the Global South and Global North and donors. The panel explored how southern- and northern-led research differ and discussed barriers and potential paths to more equitable humanitarian research opportunities for Global South researchers and institutes.
