Abstract [en]

Natural disasters frequently occur in conflict areas yet little is known about what affect disaster response can have in these areas. This research takes one of the first steps to nuance the understanding on how spatial variations in a conflict can impact natural disaster response by asking: Under what conditions could rebel-held areas receive effective disaster response? The research contributes to the knowledge by addressing both spatial variations in conflicts and the role of rebel groups in natural disaster management. The theoretical argument tested is: Rebel groups with full territorial control over an area are more likely to enable a more efficient response to natural disasters then rebel groups whose areas are contested by another warring actor. To test the argument, I conduct a structured focused comparison of two rebel-held areas located in Asia after the Tsunami in 2004. As a result the empirical evidence in this study provides support to the hypothesis, and strengthens the argument that more nuanced research on natural disaster response is needed.
