Welcome to the UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action website.

Fáilte Romhaibh go hIonad um Ghníomh Daonnúil UCD.

The UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) was established in 2012 to reaffirm UCD’s commitment to excellence in research, innovation and professional development in the field of humanitarian action. The Centre is built on the strong foundations of an internationally recognised Master's programme in humanitarian action that has produced in excess of 300 postgraduates and has collaborated with various governmental and non-governmental organisations around the globe for applied research and policy analysis. 

The CHA delivers an undergraduate module, a taught MSc programme, a research-based MPhil, and a PhD programme. Students from over 15 countries work together at the CHA in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary environment. As well as teaching, the core objective of the research activities undertaken at the CHA is to deepen the understanding of contemporary humanitarian challenges in order to promote evidence-based humanitarian response. 

Please take a look around the site to learn more about applying for our courses and our current research. Make sure to check back regularly for news and upcoming events.
