The Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) Speaker Series is a regular student-focused forum that draws on the expertise of a range of practitioners, academics and researchers both within HCRI and more widely, covering a broad range of humanitarian-related issues and contexts.
The Speaker Series provides an opportunity to learn from and interact with scholars and practitioners in an informal and intimate environment in order to gain insights from people's own experiences.
Past speakers include Jane Cocking, Humanitarian Director for Oxfam GB. For footage of our past events, visit our website: http://www.hcri.manchester.ac.uk/news-and-events/events-programme/
Dr Suda Perera
Role: Research Fellow
Biography: Suda is a Research Fellow at the Developmental Leadership Program (DLP), in the International Development Department of Birmingham University. She is interested in the role that non-state actors play in leadership processes in conflict-affected states. Currently she is working on a project examining armed groups and political inclusion in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). She is also working on a related British Academy-funded project examining the extent to which crowdsourcing techniques can effectively gather information from difficult to access populations in the DRC and a DfID-supported project on Service Delivery and Resilience among Host Communities in Jordan and Lebanon. In this Speaker Series event, Suda will talk about her research and focus on the difficulty of analysing “messy” data.
