Call for Submissions! for The Humanitarian Leader! Submit till 31 July 2024!

The Humanitarian Leader, a bilingual publication in English and French, is an independent voice for the humanitarian sector. We tell stories that challenge our collective assumptions and presenconcepts that help make humanitarian aid more just, equitable and effective.  

The Humanitarian Leader authors include researchers, activists volunteers and humanitarian professionals – anyone with something to say about how aid could and should be better.

It provides a platform for non-peer-reviewed research and allows authors to test ideas and insight in an accessible academic setting. All papers are published by openjournals@Deakin.

Papers must broadly inform humanitarian leadership, and promote discussion and dialogue in the sector.

Submissions are encouraged to challenge our collective assumptions about the humanitarian system. We welcome papers that deal with concepts of leadership in the humanitarian system, as well as ideas useful to humanitarian decision-makers, or that interact with core concepts of the humanitarian system.

In 2024, authors of accepted papers will receive a small honoraria payment of 200-300 AUD, depending on the number of authors on a paper. Staff of the two partnership institutions that comprise the CHL, Deakin University and Save the Children Australia, are welcome to submit papers but are ineligible for honoraria payments.
