About this Unit
This unit uses comparative analysis of different emergency responses to humanitarian disasters to provide students with the skills and knowledge required to play a role in future emergency and disaster management. Students will gain knowledge of the geo-political forces and key international frameworks and standards that shape humanitarian responses, and of the motivations and approaches of aid donors and humanitarian NGOs when intervening in states. They will also gain foundational knowledge of assessment of NGO capacities and organisational infrastructure for managing emergencies, for example their organisational structures and cultures, donor priorities, support systems and personnel.
