The Centre for Humanitarian Leadership nurtures new ways of thinking about the challenges facing the humanitarian system through our PhD projects and scholarships.

We’ve enabled a broad range of experts to investigate topics ranging from palliative care in humanitarian response, conflict and sexual violence against men, and management approaches to empower field teams and devolve decision-making ability.

The Centre for Humanitarian Leadership is part of Deakin University. All PhD applicants and candidates must go through the Deakin process.
