Online Conference: When Disaster meets Conflict
Lessons on Disaster Governance and Humanitarian Action
When disasters happen in a conflict-setting, responses involve many state and non-state actors that try to reach affected populations. Who are these actors and do they work together? Who can affect communities' trust to work for their interests? How are politics interfering in their actions?
These were some of the questions which directed research during the five-year research project When Disaster Meets Conflict. The research focused on the nexus between humanitarian aid and disaster governance. Case studies were done in high-conflict settings in Afghanistan, South Sudan, and Yemen; in low-intensity conflict settings in Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and Myanmar, and in post-conflict settings in Nepal, Sierra Leone, and Haiti.
The International Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam has the honor to invite you to the Online Conference ‘When Disaster meets Conflict: Lessons on Disaster Governance and Humanitarian Action’. During the conference, the main findings will be presented and discussed with stakeholders that are active in the Disaster-Conflict nexus.
The conference comprises three workshops (limited spaces) and one public webinar.
