The Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies (CHS) is honored to host Dr. Hany El-Banna OBE, to share his highly valued insight and experience on humanitarian efforts in the Muslim World.  The Muslim world is currently facing enormous challenges.  Wars, conflict, and disaster relief across the world are at an alarming high, leaving an estimated 65.3 million people forcibly displaced, with over 50 percent of refugees coming from the countries of Somalia, Afghanistan, and Syria. Humanitarian assistance to the broader Middle East must be re-visted from a social and cultural perspective to avoid growing insecurity and disaster in the region.
