We consulted over 2700 people that had received aid in Somalia, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Syria. Only 400 of them said aid agencies had asked for their opinion. That’s just 15 in 100, which left us wondering what aid agencies had to say about this.

Consulting people about the aid they receive is recognised as central to improving the quality of humanitarian assistance.

Prof. Dr. Maria Besiou is working on different humanitarian logistics projects. In this talk, she explores what the refugees are dreaming of and how we can help them realize their dreams into reality. What is the role of logistics in that?
