In order to disseminate the knowledge generated by its research activities as widely as possible, the French Red Cross Foundation is committed to producing quality, open access publications. Whilst focusing on the funding of Francophone researchers, whose work is less visible in the predominantly anglophone international literature, the Foundation also guarantees their translation into English, in order to maximise their reach.

Les Papiers de la Fondation

Les Papiers

“Les Papiers de la Fondation” are articles written each year by the researchers supported by the Foundation. They present the findings of their research. As working papers, they are written to academic standards for both specialised and general audiences, in order to foster wider debate.

The Devenir Humanitaire Collection


This collection, directed by the Foundation in partnership with Editions Karthala, brings together a series of volumes based on the seminars organised each year by the Foundation. Thanks to Edition Karthala’s distribution networks, these volumes are available in France, but also in bookshops throughout Africa.

Humanitarian Alternatives review


Humanitarian Alternatives is an internationally-oriented bilingual review, created in partnership with a number of foundations and enriched by a vast network of universities and partner institutions. The review, dedicated to research and debate, is published three times a year, and its articles are available online.
