What’s the state of emergency response? Humanitarians provide their perspectives from migration, to climate change, to resilience, as we mark the World Humanitarian Summit this month.

We’ve also launched our practical guide to rights in crisis influencing and published a policy paper on putting people first in Africa's economy. In addition you’ll find opinion on the Panama Papers, unpaid care work, and evidence synthesis, as well as a host of new policy and research publications.

Best wishes,
