Professor Bertrand Taithe from the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at The University of Manchester will delve into Manchester’s history of humanitarianism alongside one of its pivotal figures, Professor Tony Redmond.

Prof. Redmond founded UK-Med, a frontline humanitarian medical NGO established in 1988 by the South Manchester Accident Rescue Team. His recent donation to the Humanitarian Archive at the John Rylands University Library, inaugurated by Prof. Taithe in 2021, adds to the significant materials. They will explore Manchester’s humanitarian legacy and their roles in preserving and narrating its stories.
