Dr Sarah Rosenberg-Jansen (ISRF Independent Scholar Research Fellow) has a new podcast with the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies, as part of their Talking Humanitarianism series. In ‘What do we know about humanitarian energy?’, she discusses what humanitarian energy is and how it operates in the contexts of displacement.
Based on her academic and practitioner work, she highlights how humanitarian organisations are not the main providers of energy access in displacement contexts, but rather the main providers are refugees themselves through local markets and the private sector.
The podcast also explores possible radical options and progressive pathways for humanitarian energy action, and the differences in energy provision during short-term and long-term displacement.
