This is an ongoing project in collaboration with the Swedish Red Cross, and we are looking at the role of volunteering and capturing volunteer experiences in conflicts and emergency settings. A comprehensive study of volunteering experiences of local volunteers in the Red Cross Red Crescent movement was undertaken, which will be used to further the research on:
- uncovering motivations of volunteers in conflicts and emergencies
- understanding how training is conducted in such settings, and the role of technology in better volunteer training.
- recognising current organisational policies on volunteering in such contexts and greater advocacy for the rights of local volunteers.
