Desperate and Displaced: Ensuring NGOs Do Their Best to Help Those in Humanitarian Crisis

Vice President for Policy and Humanitarian Response at Save the Children


Ambassador Michael Klosson

Date & time

Nov 18, 2019, 11:30 am-1:00 pm EST

We invite the Ford School community to a seminar with Ambassador Klosson from Save the Children.

The session will focus on the expanding number of people caught up in humanitarian crises around the world for increasingly protracted periods, and the role of International Nongovernmental Organizations (INGOs) in responding to these needs. What principles should guide how INGOs go about these responses? The session will provide for an interactive discussion of challenges and dilemmas NGOs must navigate, drawing on several short hypotheticals or case studies and Save the Children’s experience.

Ambassador Michael Klosson joined Save the Children in January 2007 after a career in international affairs and serves as the Vice President for Policy and Humanitarian Responses. He oversees the agency's public policy and advocacy work with the U.S. and foreign governments as well as its global emergency response work.
