Elizabeth Ferris, Co-Director of the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement, remarks on the intersection between violence and disasters, and its implications for humanitarian response in urban settings.

She concludes by posing broader and more fundamental questions regarding the whole nature of humanitarian response and “humanitarian emergencies” within the context of urban disasters.
