We are pleased to publish our annual report for 2008/09. This last year has proved an extraordinarily productive year for the Center. We have 34 active research projects across five major programs, carrying out research globally and in 12 countries. We produced 20 major Center reports, all freely available on our website, as well as numerous journal articles, two books, and five book chapters.
Faculty at the Center taught 11 courses at the graduate level at Tufts. Sixteen students graduated with Masters in humanitarian-focused degrees driven by Center courses, and 90 students completed the Humanitarian Studies Initiative Certificate.
More impressive than the numbers has been the impact of our research on policy and programming in crisis-affected areas.
