Connected to NOHA is a research hub on humanitarianism and crisis with research projects within the University of Groningen that are related to the Network of Humanitarian Action. The projects share a focus on humanitarian issues, crisis management policies but differ in their disciplinary focus, research questions, and methodological approaches, thereby contributing to the multidisciplinary nature of NOHA Groningen. The projects are located at the various faculties and departments of the University but share an overall interest in matters of humanitarian action and organization.
