December 2018

Constraints on humanitarian access continue to inhibit the ability of affected populations to receive adequate assistance in numerous conflict situations. This scoping study was commissioned to determine the feasibility and potential impact of developing new ‘principles’ of access. It was undertaken between September and December 2018 and involved a literature review and interviews with 22 experts from humanitarian and donor agencies as well as academic and advocacy entities engaged in this issue area.
