Refugee Camp. History of a Humanitarian Technology

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Emergency relief in refugee camps is no longer a temporary exception in Africa. For the past 50 years or so, refugee camps have been marking the history of the continent. From the creation of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR 1951) to the current influx of refugees from the Central African Republic into Cameroon (2014), refugee camps have emerged as the dominant standardized tool for the implementation of international humanitarian aid. Anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists and geographers have already put considerable effort into analyzing this topic. However, so far, no historical studies are available. This project considers refugee camps as a technical dispositive of globalized humanitarian aid. It analyzes how, since the creation of UNHCR in 1951, a particular articulation of physical artifacts (tents, kits, tools), scientific components (manuals, procedures, statistics), norms (rules, legal categories, standards), and experts (engineers, physicians, urban planners, architects, etc.) has emerged. The project inquires firstly the controversies linked to the planning of refugee camps, secondly the standardization and materialization and solutions, and thirdly the creative adaptation of camp technologies by aid recipients.On the empirical level, the project analyzes three dimensions of camp technologies: a) technologies of refugee screening and triage, the emergence of which is traced through the exploration of technical mission reports stored in the UNHCR archives in Geneva; b) design and planning of model camps, analyzed through UNHCR grey literature and handbooks; and c) the question of aid allocation, studied through a field observation and expert interviews in the refugee camps around Meiganga (North Eastern Cameroon). This project will contribute to the Priority Program by an indepth analysis of refugee camps as a technology of social and spatial ordering. Refugee camps combine different spheres of activities (health, social distinctions, juridical classification, security issues) and link different actors and interests (humanitarian workers, refugees, local population leaders, etc.). They are therefore a case in point to articulate a vision of global order with a vision of local ordering and adaptability.

RURBANAFRICA

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Africa currently has a low proportion of its population living in cities and towns. This is rapidly changing, however, and by the middle of this century it is predicted that the majority of Africans will be urban residents. Understanding the connections between rural areas and cities is thus vital for planning for the future needs of the residents of sub-Saharan African countries. For this purpose, the overall objective of the African Rural-City Connections (RurbanAfrica) project has been to explore the connections between rural transformations, mobility, and urbanization processes and analyze how these contribute to an understanding of the scale, nature and location of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. This has included critically scrutinizing the assumption that migration from rural areas to cities is one of the major development challenges faced by national and local governments in their efforts to stimulate economic growth and curb poverty. The project has been in operation from April 2012 to March 2016 and has focused on four sub-Saharan African countries: Ghana, Cameroon, Rwanda and Tanzania. Research was led by the University of Copenhagen and organized into four thematic work packages; Agricultural Transformation, Rural Livelihoods, City Dynamics, and Access to Services; and two work packages working on dissemination and policy dialogues and management and syntheses.

African Rural-City Connections

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The overall objective of the African Rural-City Connections (RurbanAfrica) project is to explore the connections between rural transformations, mobility, and urbanization processes and analyze how these contribute to an understanding of the scale, nature and location of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. The RurbanAfrica project will advance the research agenda on rural-city connections in sub-Saharan Africa by addressing a range of crucial components: agricultural transformations, rural livelihoods, city dynamics, and access to services in cities. In this respect the project will challenge a number of generally accepted ‘truths’ about rural and city development, and the importance and implication of migration in shaping these. It will thereby question the overall negative interpretations of the economic role of rural-urban mobility and migration in sub-Saharan Africa and generate new insights into the relationship between rural-city connections and poverty dynamics. The project will include nine partners; four European, one international, and four sub-Saharan African. RurbanAfrica focuses on four country cases: Rwanda, Tanzania, Cameroon and Ghana and examine in-depth two rural-city connections in each of the case countries. Research is organized into six work packages: Agricultural transformation, rural livelihoods, city dynamics, access to services, knowledge platform and policy dialogue, and synthesis, dissemination and management. Central to the approach is the on-going integration of policy research, policy dialogue, knowledge sharing and empirical research. Through ongoing collaboration between senior and junior researchers from European and sub-Saharan African partners, and co-supervising of PhD students, the project will contribute to capacity building and potentially impact curriculum development. The research and dissemination process will be supported by a scientific advisory board, with members from European and sub-Saharan African research institutions.
