The objective of the “Forum Espace Humanitaire” (FEH) is to help leaders of French humanitarian organizations build towards a better future by having them work together through various topical issues dealing with the basic substance, as well as the core principles, of humanitarian action in this second decade of the 21st century. The time allotted to this forum is intentionally tightened to encourage participants to make best use of the opportunity to meet with a selected number of qualified individuals in a privileged, relaxed, and informal setting.
In an attempt to encourage openness and direct interaction, the FEH operates on the principle of confidentiality called the “Chatham House Rules”. Discussions are completely free among speakers, regardless of their affiliation. Participants agree that that they will not divulge outside the walls of the Forum the identity of the speakers expressing their views.
