In this Humanitarian Governance webinar, Tanja D. Hendriks focuses on the role of the state in humanitarian governance.

About the presentation

Based on in-depth ethnographic fieldwork with the Department of Disaster Management Affairs in Malawi, a disaster-prone country in southern Africa, Hendriks argues that civil servants of disaster-affected states are central to relief interventions: they are key to more effective, localized and sustainable forms of disaster response and risk reduction efforts.
