Within development economics, we know least about people who need help most. People who are malnourished and live in conflict-affected, fragile or humanitarian settings have low endowments, face intermittent markets, can’t reliably enforce property rights, suffer information asymmetries and receive patchy and/or poor quality public services. How do people live in such circumstances? What determines their food security and their well-being? Which livelihood choices do they and can they engage in? What works in terms of development or humanitarian assistance? And do we collect and analyse evidence in such circumstances? The seminar will review what we learnt about lives and livelihoods in crisis settings and what challenges and opportunities remain for rigorous empirical research bridging the development-humanitarian nexus, drawing on 25 years of research in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
