Southern Responses to Disasters: Keynote Address

Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh delivered the keynote address at the Disasters Conference in September 2017. In it she highlights the importance of developing and implementing responses to mass disasters that acknowledge the importance of intersecting identity markers and structures of inequality.

Pan-Arabism

Our fourth and final introductory mini blog by Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh discusses how Pan-Arabist approaches to displacement can present an alternative to dominant discourse that situate Northern humanitarian providers as saviours of displaced Southern populations.

Refugee-Refugee Humanitarianism

First responders in contexts of displacement are themselves often refugees. Our third introductory mini blog examines how a focus on refugee-refugee humanitarianism makes it possible to recognise and meaningfully engage with the agency of displaced populations.

Faith-Based Humanitarianism

Our second introductory mini blog provides a brief over view of how local faith communities are often the first responders to communities affected by conflict and displacement.

Internationalism and Solidarity

How does ‘solidarity based’ humanitarianism influence Southern led responses to displacement? In the first of our introductory mini blog series Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh presents some of the history of internationalism and solidarity based initiatives.
