I am excited to be teaching a brand new online course on 'Integrity, Accountability and Transparency in Humanitarian Operations' at Fordham University from February 1 - May 17, 2021. The course will examine the values, principles, and ethical standards that humanitarian personnel must follow when engaged in humanitarian work. Adherence to these values, principles, and standards is critical in developing and maintaining beneficiary confidence, in promoting a strong public image, in cultivating an effective workforce, and in nurturing accountability and transparency.
At the end of this course, students will have a better understanding of the meaning of ethics in the context of humanitarian work; the standards of conduct applicable to humanitarian personnel; how to systematically approach ethical problem situations; key ethical and corruption risks pertaining to the humanitarian sector; how to report and deal with ethical breaches, including sexual and other interpersonal misconduct; and how to make ethical decisions and where to seek help.
