The objective of the FEH is to help leaders of French humanitarian organisations build towards a better future through better collaboration on various topical issues dealing with the fundamentals and core principles of humanitarian action. This Forum’s agenda has been tightened to encourage participants to optimise their time when they meet with other high-ranking 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 open among speakers, regardless of their affiliation. Participants understand that that nothing is to be divulged outside the walls of the Forum.
