Our Research and Translation Activities
HADRI research focuses on the intersections between disaster relief and social and economic development. We explore the practices of government and non-government agencies involved in humanitarian operations, and their development practice. HADRI research addresses the challenges and opportunities associated with disaster preparedness, response and management; public health programs for displaced populations; building the resilience of vulnerable populations; and public health concerns surrounding national and international migration.
HADRI has three intersecting research themes :
- Disaster Preparedness, Response and Management
- Migration, Global Health and Development
- Human Security and Sustainable Development
HADRI’s major research activities across these themes focus on: ·
- Human rights and the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP);
- Food Security and food systems and its linkages to public health and nutrition;
- Migration, social disadvantage and migrant community health;
- Political economy of conflict; ·
- Livelihoods, employment and human development; ·
- Disaster and critical incident perception and preparedness; ·
- Occupational risk and resilience among humanitarian practitioners;
- Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH).
HADRI runs research training and monitoring and evaluation workshops for its research partners.
