Research in this theme interrogates the epistemologies of intervention, drawing attention to how knowledge production can constrain and enable different responses.

This includes work on the politics of data, how they shape the understanding of conflict and crisis, and how they are used to facilitate certain types of intervention.

It considers representations of humanitarianism and disaster response in narrative and iconography, highlighting the ethics of representation and the power of voice, and seeks to diversify the range and combination of academic disciplines that policy-makers and practitioners consult when developing interventions, whether local, national, or international.
