Humanitaire is a focus for debate and reflection involving human aid workers and researchers in the area.
The journal has three main goals:
- to develop enquiry into human aid; it is the only French journal devoted to exploring the fundamentals of humanitarian intervention.
- to tackle human from a variety of perspectives—law, anthropology, political science, art and literature.
- to provide a valuable mouthpiece for human aid workers and relate their experiences to that of researchers.
