All universities apply a common assessment procedure for the IP – a written academic essay, analyzing the following statement:
Katerina Rozakou, analyzing keywords of humanitarianism, provided the following statement: “The tension between solidarity and hierarchy, control and care, domination and aid, is constitutive of humanitarianism. In this background the field of “solidarity humanitarianism” pushes us to critically reflect upon and revisit our perspective of humanitarianism.”
Building on the knowledge and concepts discussed during the IP, critically analyze the key issues raised in the statement above, supporting your argument with relevant examples. In your answer, please make sure you refer to the compulsory readings and discuss the key four themes of the IP (history and principles, actors and institutions, contexts and sectors, and activities).
The essay should amount to 5000 words (+/- 10%) and should be written in the language of instruction of your home university. The essay must be written in accordance with academic standards: this means for instance that proper references whenever sources are used should be provided. Your writing style is expected to be analytically precise.
