Abstract

This paper uses econometric methods and case-study evidence to examine the political economy of complex humanitarian emregencies, multidimensional crises characterized by warfare, state violence, disease, hunger, and displacement. We emphasize that economic variables often become salient through relative deprivation, the actors' perception of social injustice from a growing discrepancy between goods and conditions they expect and those they can get or keep.
