The Cambridge Migration Society presents the first seminar in a series on Humanitarianism and Development in the Governance of Migration “Crises”.

This series brings together development practitioners, humanitarian workers, and academics in various fields to explore and critically discuss how policies and practices in the fields of development, humanitarianism, and migration control inform and intersect with each other.

Professor Apthorpe, an anthropologist with decades of experience as a humanitarian in the field, will discuss the ways in which different conceptions of development and humanitarian intervention inform, overlap, and contradict with each other. This seminar offers a foundation for participants to understand the various ways these terms are conceptualized and will be used in this series.

About Professor Apthorpe: Visiting Professor Raymond Apthorpe has taught in many universities around the world and worked for and advised a variety of governmental, inter-governmental, and non-governmental organizations in the UK and elsewhere. He is an associate member of the five year Humanitarian Response to Natural Disasters in Conflict Zones research project at Erasmus University’s International Institute of Social Research, The Hague, where he was Professor of Social Anthropology and Sociology of Development for ten years. Professor Apthorpe is also Honorary Secretary of the Royal Anthropological Society, London.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Migration Society series.
