This study analyses the drivers and inhibitors of change in the humanitarian system. It focuses on 3 reform efforts: cash based emergency response, accountability to affected populations and protection. For each area, the study explores 4 questions to help explain why reforms are successful or unsuccessful, and to generate ideas for the more effective promotion of reforms:
What exactly is the reform proposal?
What would the humanitarian system look like if the proposal were fully implemented?
How would these changes affect the self-interests of important stakeholder groups?
What are the policy implications of these reflections?
As well as the full report, there is a 16 page summary.
