The ICRC and the Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) are convening a live-streamed panel at the Humanitarium gathering humanitarian agencies and researchers to identify current access challenges for international and local organizations. What strategies do agencies use to gain access? How can we better harness the experience of local organizations to improve access to people in need? The event offers insights from HPG's two-year research project on humanitarian access by local organizations entitled "Holding the keys: who gets access in times of conflict?" The conference is part of the ICRC's Conference Cycle on Generating respect for the law.
