Dr. Andrew Jones is a Teaching Fellow at the University of Birmingham. His PhD dissertation examined the contribution of British aid agencies to the emergence of a disaster relief ‘industry’ in the period between 1942 and 1985. It did so through a focus upon the group of organisations connected to the UK Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), a high-profile umbrella body for joint emergency fundraising originally set up in the 1960s. His new project charts the rise of humanitarian infrastructure in Britain from 1919 to the present day. You can browse his blog contributions below.
