Power and Inequality in the Humanitarian Sector

Who governs the humanitarian sector?  The answer is often some combination of big donors, the UN system, and the largest international nongovernmental aid agencies.  If these are the actors that govern, then who is being governed?  The answer is often affected populations and national and local agencies.  This pyramid – with a few at the top and many at the bottom – has inspired many calls to reform the sector so that it is less exclusive and more inclusive.  This survey asks you about your views on: the current relationship between international and local agencies; whether and how localization might create a more equitable and legitimate humanitarian sector; and the primary obstacles to localization. 

This anonymous survey is designed to register your views on these issues.  It should take about 15 minutes of your time. Your responses will be kept confidential and will not be identified by individual name or individual attributes. All responses will be compiled together and analyzed as a group with identifying information removed from the data. Submission of the survey will be interpreted as your informed consent to participate and that you affirm that you are at least 18 years of age. If you have any questions, please contact Michael Barnett ([email protected]) or Alex Vandermaas-Peeler ([email protected]).
