JHLSCM Virtual Issue: Humanitarian Aid in Conflict Zones

Journal of Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Situations like the one in Gaza highlight the need for research in a few specific areas of humanitarian logistics and supply chain management: 

  • Delivering humanitarian aid in conflict zones and complex emergencies; 
  • Humanitarian access; 
  • Security in humanitarian operations; and 
  • Caring for refugees and internally displaced persons.

Extant research and research results in these areas are available to support current humanitarian action. This is but a selection of relevant past research that has been published in the Journal of Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The list includes research from conflict zones, including research in Gaza. Apart from supporting current humanitarian endeavours in Gaza, this selection also highlights how research in such situations is conducted, and which special conditions apply to research and practice in such conflicts. 

These papers are free to access until 24/03/2024.
