This research paper describes how, since the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, the discussion on locally led humanitarian action has evolved and become more nuanced in many ways, and with respect to intermediaries, the discussion has become less polarized and more constructive. The paper seeks to contribute to that constructive direction by recognizing that intermediaries have a role to play, but that the future role of intermediaries needs to change substantially from the status quo.
