When we hear ‘emergency aid’, most of us initially think of medical assistance, food and shelter. However, the large amount of information that is available nowadays is having an increasingly greater impact on the effectiveness of relief efforts. You could indeed go as far as to say that the provision of information should be a human right, as Bartel Van de Walle argued in his inaugural address at TU Delft on Friday, 10 March 2017. DCHI participated in the humanitarian salon organized prior the inaugural address during which mr. Van de Walle was installed as a professor for Public Policy Analysis at the Delft University of Technology. Curious to learn more? You can still watch the professor’s entire speech right here.
DCHI wishes Bartel the best of luck in his new position, and looks forward to continue working with the TU Delft | Global Initiative within the Coalition!
