Join us on 13-14 October for the online conference of When Disaster Meets Conflict!

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 affected 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 ConflictThe research focused on the nexus between humanitarian aid and disaster governance in three conflict settings.

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.
