UiA bidrar med paneldeltakere og leder en workshop som handler om enkeltmennesker som tar initiativ til hjelpeorganisasjoner som yter nødhjelp i katastrofesituasjoner. Haaland og Wallevik har levert forskningsbidrag på feltet, for eksempel "How Does Humanitarianism Spread? Modeling the Origins of Citizen Initiatives through Norm Diffusion", eller formidling som eksempelvis Global solidaritet og hjemmelaget humanitær bistand i Fædrelandsvennen 28. september 2015, eller EU – hvor er du? i Verdidebatt, Vårt Land, 13. mai 2019.

Her er beskrivelsen av workshopen Wallevik og Haaland leder i Brussel-konferansen:

Citizens Initiatives in a Humanitarian Setting

Many Citizen Initiatives emerged from recent humanitarian crises: the tsunami, the earthquakes in Nepal and Haiti, the refugee crisis in Syria… The case of the migration crises on the Greek island of Lesbos is discussed to answer broader questions like: what roles can Citizen Initiatives play in a humanitarian situation? And, what impact can they have?

Chair: Hanne Haaland & Hege Wallevik (Agder University, Norway)

Her er presentasjonen av hele konferansen:

2nd European conference on citizen initiatives for global solidarity

Citizen Initiatives: Change Makers for the SDGs? 

On Thursday 20 and Friday 21 June 2019
ENABEL Conference Center, Brussels

With an opening Key note by Professor Lisa Ann Richey (Department of Management, Society and Communication, Copenhagen Business School), co-editor of the book ‘New Actors and Alliances in Development’

The Sustainable Development Goals aim to leave no one behind but reaching these global goals is also everyone’s business… or are they some people’s business more than other’s?

This two day network conference sheds lights on the role of a little exposed player in the SDG agenda: ‘ordinary’ people involved in North-South cooperation.

It starts from the finding that many European citizens are involved in cross border partnerships for international solidarity.

This conference will offer a unique platform for exchanges between an international community of policy makers, practitioners, academics and representatives of citizen initiatives. From different contexts and disciplines we will question the role of cross border citizen’s initiatives in reaching the sustainable development goals.
