Conflict and Development

Humanitarianism

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2019

There is much talk of the ‘relief to development’ continuum in the aid world, and about the need to create clusters of agencies to work together in providing more coherent responses to the needs of populations. However, there are underlying tensions associated with relief and development which continually arise, not least because relief is shaped by an ideology, humanitarianism, which, in essence, requires development to fail. Humanitarianism is a powerful, pervasive and resilient set of ideas associated with saving strangers.

Glocal Magazine Launch 2017 - The Role of Development in Areas of Conflict

January 27, 2017

 

On January 27th, 2017 we launched our annual magazine in an event taking place at Yeffet 83, Jaffa's young adults community center. Nearly 50 participants gathered to discuss the role of development in areas of conflict, and to learn different perspectives of academics, and professional speakers from the field.  

We thank Mr. Ariel Dloomy, Ms. Nivine Sandouka and Ms. Yalee Azani for speaking and to our dear guests for attending and presenting their views on the topic. 

This event was made possible with the help of SID Israel.
