Humanitarian 2022 Special Issue

Conflict, insecurity, weak institutions and limited access to justice remain a great threat to sustainable development, particularly with current events in Ukraine. We condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine and join the call for an immediate cease fire to protect civilians and restore peace. We stand with the people of Ukraine and are committed to supporting the research and healthcare communities we serve that are impacted by the unfolding humanitarian crisis. To further support all humanitarian efforts, we have created a publicly available special issue focused on the tremendous challenges Ukraine and other countries face to protect human rights and the rule of law as well as the knowledge and solutions that can advance peace and security.
