New York, NY – March 6, 2017 – Brendan Cahill, Executive Director of Fordham University’s Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs has been named to the editorial board of the Journal of International Humanitarian Action, a peer-review journal published by the Network on Humanitarian Action (NOHA).
The IIHA has partnered with NOHA for years, often providing education and academic support to their European-based students at Fordham University. Mr. Cahill is enthusiastic to deepen the Institute’s academic partnership with NOHA by championing this essential tool for a community of humanitarian academics.
“The Journal is a wonderful initiative, and highlights the role academia can and must play in regards to humanitarian action. The Journal is a natural outlet for our scholars, and another axis point between academia and the humanitarian sector which will complement our International Humanitarian Affairs Book Series from Fordham University Press and our education programs.
As the IIHA focuses more on multilevel education together with research and publications, the Journal allows for greater interaction with a global network of scholars and practitioners. The Institute is growing because it remains constantly innovative, and seeks to remain relevant in the training of next generations of aid professionals,” said Mr. Cahill.
The IIHA looks forward to being an integral part of NOHA’s community of thought leaders by contributing to critical analysis and research that seeks to highlight contemporary challenges and ultimately improve humanitarian response around the world.
