About us

The Centre for Applied Reflection on Humanitarian Practice (ARHP) documents and reflects upon the operational challenges and dilemmas faced by the field teams of the MSF Operational Centre Barcelona-Athens (MSF OCBA). ARHP’s purpose is two-fold: internally we aim to feed identified lessons learned back into operations as well as to support advocacy efforts, while externally we seek to give visibility to practical and operational constraints in humanitarian practice and, when relevant, how MSF has addressed them.

This website is intended both to serve as a container of the work produced and to facilitate debate and feedback. General comments and questions can be channelled through the “contact” section whilst each document has a dedicated comments thread.
