The conference is a close collaboration between the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) at Coventry University, the United Nations Human Security Unit and Kadir Has University, and it will be hosted at Kadir Has University.

This year's theme of the conference is “Humanitarian Security in Difficult Times II”.
