​This three-year research project investigates integrated conflict responses in the Arab world and beyond, with a focus on the role of Qatar, through an empirically-grounded, multi-tiered approach. The project involves a major comparative study of the impact and effectiveness of Qatar’s humanitarian, developmental, and peacebuilding aid to conflict-affected contexts, in particular in the cases of Darfur, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, and the Rohingya refugee response. The research also analyses the concept and practice of aid effectiveness in Qatari aid organizations and develops a contextually-relevant framework of aid evaluation suited to non-traditional donors deeply involved in conflict-affected and fragile contexts. More broadly, the project explores integrated conflict response policies, such as the emergent global discourse on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, and their translatability and operationalization in the context of the Arab region.
