The Epistemology of Humanitarian Emergency

Lead researcher: Jean-François Dubé

Obtaining reliable information is crucial for humanitarian workers who aim to respond to a catastrophic situation. In this context, there are many possible sources of information (e.g., local population; journalists; authorities), but only a limited time to gather data, analyze them and respond to the situation. This project examines the characteristics of information production and diffusion in humanitarian emergencies from a social epistemology (SE) perspective.
