IECAH and HumanSurge sign partnership agreement

HumanSurge continues its efforts to offer qualified professionals the best avenues to display their skills and availability to the humanitarian ecosystem at-large. The recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Institute of Studies on Conflicts and Humanitarian Action (IECAH) is an excellent example.

IECAH offers high-quality courses within the sphere of humanitarian action, predominantly in the Spanish language. From now on, graduates from online courses offered by IECAH  will be able to certify their course completion when registered with HumanSurge. Once confirmed, humanitarians will be assigned a unique badge to their profile, which enables NGO recruiters to quickly identify verified qualifications.




The Institute of Studies on Conflicts and Humanitarian Action (IECAH) was founded in the year 2000 and has its central office in Madrid, Spain. IECAH unites experts from various fields and geographic areas related to international conflict and cooperation with special emphasis on humanitarian action. The expertise and activities exist at both an educational as well as a research level, and from national as well as international perspectives and centers. IECAH unites considerable practical experience and knowledge from work for NGOs and other types of organizations active in the field of international cooperation.

With a clearly defined multidiscipline approach, IECAH’s activities consist of four main branches: analysis, advice and consulting, teaching, and diffusion. Its main frame of reference is rooted in the necessity to explore the dynamics that generate present conflicts – both interstate as well as intrastate -; to determine the main characteristics of the tendencies and global challenges facing the international system of the post-Cold War period; to examine the different approaches to prevention and resolution of conflicts; and to evaluate and influence the responses of the international community with respect to development cooperation and humanitarian action.
