Dan Maxwell offers five “star reads” for monthly Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summaries

Each month, the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) at the University of Manchester pulls together recent important reports, peer-reviewed articles, and blog posts to create the Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summary. In this rapidly burgeoning field, it is often hard to keep up with everything coming out—this service helps.

For the April 2023 edition, Dan Maxwell was asked to select his top five reads. The April Summary, including Dan’s selections, is available here.

This summary signposts FCDO and other UK government departments to the latest relevant evidence and discourse to inform and support their response to crises. The reports were initiated as part of the former Knowledge, Evidence and Learning for Development (K4D) project of which HCRI was also a member. The service began in December 2022.
