« DOES AID (ACTUALLY) AID IN AVOIDING DISASTERS AND REBUILDING AFTER THEM?
Some scholars, policy-makers and practitioners believe that humanitarian aid contributes to making beneficiaries more resilient and reducing their vulnerability. Others are not so sure; they argue that aid is often controlled by political agendas, and creates results that are more damaging than desirable.
