‘On the 3rd of October 2016, Dr Hany ElBanna was invited as a keynote speaker, to the latest DEMAC conference ‘A Missing Link? Diaspora’s Place in an Enhanced International Humanitarian System’.

The conference brought together EU and international representatives from civil society, diaspora organisations, humanitarian organisations, and research institutes to explore and discuss opportunities and strengths related to Diaspora Humanitarianism.

Dr Hany’s speech focused on the importance of working with diaspora’s organisations and communities as full partners, not mere contractors. He also highlighted the role of these organisations during humanitarian responses, as well as their unique role in enriching their host communities.
