A closer look at humanitarian regimes in the Mediterranean
Historical research has reconstructed international humanitarian aid programmes through the experience of donor countries in northern Europe and the United States. What about the countries of southern Europe? These have been largely overlooked. The EU-funded HumanEuroMed project focuses on Europe’s Mediterranean countries. It will study the experience of various actors like administrations, institutions and NGOs in various countries in the region, such as Greece and Spain. Taking a comparative and transnational perspective, the project will promote a multi-level history of contemporary humanitarian regimes. Specifically, it will compare the linkages between international relief and national welfare. It will also study the role of humanitarian diplomacy and transnational networks.
