Abstract

Disasters stemming from natural hazards (floods, earthquakes) are often viewed simplistically as consensus events, with much emphasis on community cohesion and mutual aid. While such social processes undoubtedly occur, a gender analysis uncovers levels of underlying conflict based on unequal power dynamics due to pre-existing social inequalities. Those living in conflict and fragile states are more vulnerable to such environmental disasters due to their reduced capacity to respond to the dual crises. Despite strong links between conflict and hazards, they remain separate fields of study. This conversation examines the interconnectedness and the limitations of parallel policies around conflict and disaster and the gendered harms and consequences that are perpetuated as a result.
