One of our intents when we agreed to edit the Journal of Humanitarian Assistance was to provide a forum for field practitioners to analyze and reflect critically on some of the important questions and issues they face in applied humanitarian work – and to receive critical feedback from others through the JHA website.
With the paper by Sarah Bailey and Steve Walsh, “The Use of Cash in Emergency and Post-Emergency Non-Food Item Programs – A Case Study from the Democratic Republic of Congo,” JHA is launching a Series on “Practitioner Analysis and Reflection.”
As usual, feedback to this very insightful analysis is solicited from the readership of JHA. But we also hope that this paper inspires other field practitioners to take similar approach to analyzing and writing up critical questions from your own experience and fieldwork.
We look forward to receiving your draft papers!
