CMR 587 - Conflict, Crisis and Disaster Management in an International Context

Course Description: This course provides a study of international humanitarian crises that arise because of conflict or natural disasters, which are often referred to as complex humanitarian emergencies. Vital institutions of a country in such contexts are often destroyed and recovery efforts involve external interventions. What are the challenges faced by governments and external intervening actors when assessing the needs for vulnerable groups in such crises? What are the obstacles to recovery? What might be the underlying ethical issues faced by policymakers and practitioners when making policy decisions? These are the key questions examined in this course. In sum, the course offers students various approaches to understand the dynamics of complex emergencies worldwide and the existing approaches to respond to such crises.
