EPISODE 2: WHAT IS THE ROLE OF AID IN CONFLICT?

Podcast RSS

Aid flows in when conflict erupts but could aid play a bigger role before conflict turns violent? We speak with Aimé Saba
from the University of Sydney’s Department of Peace and Conflict Studies about how aid operates in war zones,
why the example of Africa offers a case for increasing aid and whether conflict is necessary.
