Inclusive Recovery and Development
The Inclusive Recovery and Development group explores the social aspects of development, emergencies and disasters with a particular focus on identifying and understanding the processes of marginalisation and discrimination that lead to exclusions of some social groups from developmental and emergencies/disasters recovery processes. The research is particularly concerned with how social factors influence relative vulnerability and resilience experienced by individuals and households, the affirmation of their rights in developmental processes and in emergencies. It studies how social identities of persons, namely gender, age, disability, race and ethnicity and their intersectionality, contribute to this experience. The group's recent work has particularly focused on inclusion of older people and people with disabilities in humanitarian and development work.
Members' research engages with:
- Unheard voices of excluded groups
- Social change processes, both micro and macro constraints and enabling factors for inclusive recoveries and development.
- Human rights, inclusion policies and strategies, inclusive designing, safeguarding policies, livelihood systems, coping, adaptation strategies including migration.
- Rights-based development, social entitlements, social protection and safeguards for the discriminated social groups.
