In support of the principle of Open Access, the USI Master of Advanced Studies in Humanitarian Logistics and Management (MASHLM) announces the publication online of the executive summaries of master’s theses, to maximize the visibility and availability of the research conducted by MASHLM participants who are active professionals working with logistics, operations, and management in the humanitarian sector. This research is based on real-life situations in humanitarian logistics and operations across a variety of contexts, such as migration, military conflicts, emergency operations, negotiations, fundraising, stakeholder coordination, environmental impact.

MASHLM aims to demonstrate the quality of student research and to make it freely available to the public, raising awareness of humanitarian issues and providing opportunities for further research.

Participants come from over 70 countries and have written their theses in English, which for most is a non-native language.

 

Access to the Master executive summaries is free of charge, but cannot be reproduced without permission.
