Research Project

Humanitarian Assistance and Conflict Economies: Analyzing Humanitarian Resource Networks in Darfur (Sudan)

Working in conflict settings means for humanitarian organizations that they must cope with belligerent groups and their distinct political and economic agendas – agendas that often do not comply with humanitarian norms and principles. My doctoral research project aims to contribute to a better understanding of the difficult interplay between humanitarian organizations and belligerent groups in Darfur (Sudan). I use network analysis to examine the social production and effects of inter-relations between local humanitarian resource structures and belligerent economies. I use a qualitative comparative case study design which mainly builds on long-term participant observation and interviews with three humanitarian NGOs and two conflict parties in North Darfur. Field work will start in Summer 2018.

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Dennis Dijkzeul
