As part of its contribution to MSF's critical self-reflexion, the CRASH regularly invites outside speakers, researchers and key civil society figures to come present their perspectives and their work on general issues that intersect with the concerns of humanitarian action. Intended primarily for an internal audience - but open to others closely connected to the association - each conference is followed by an open discussion.
