Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches, and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations.

For 25 years the aid sector has endlessly tried to reform itself. But change has not come easily. Jessica Alexander, global aid professional and the editor of The New Humanitarian’s Rethinking Humanitarianism series, will discuss how new pressures and operating models brought on by the post-COVID landscape and #BLM may be enough to push through reforms that had been slow to take hold until now.
