cracks in the edifice. Bauböck confronts the territorial leakiness of state-based communities. But the assault on the state is more insidious than he can safely concede. This essay interrogates Bauböck's stakeholder model as a matter of theory and highlights possibly unsustainable empirical assumptions behind it. It is unclear what binds citizens together in the stakeholder state. There is a suggestion of shared purpose, but it is not apparent

everyone’s responsibility’. Acceptance was rightly understood in terms of how the organisation and its programmes were perceived by the population and authorities. Yet ‘acceptance is founded on effective relationships and cultivating and maintaining consent from beneficiaries, local authorities, belligerents and other stakeholders’ ( Fast and O’Neill, 2010 ). And building such relationships requires not only time but human resources with

, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), gender-based violence (GBV), disability and older-age inclusion – or to systemic humanitarian innovation ‘problems’, such as localisation and scale. Thematic gaps for innovation to address are identified through robust gap analyses, problem exploration ‘deep dives’ and challenge prioritisation exercises, engaging a wide range of stakeholders and working together with experts in these areas. We support more complex, cross-sector challenges (for example, humanitarian inclusion in WASH), seek to address systemic as well as operational aspects of

males to pay bride price, alongside norms related to girls’ virginity and child-bearing. We suggest child marriage needs to be analysed more holistically in terms of norms affecting not just girls, but males as well. In the following section we explain the methods used to conduct our study. We then present findings on key drivers of child marriage. Methods This study sought to understand gender dynamics and the implications for SCI’s programming in South Sudan using mixed methods and multi-stakeholder consultations. It focused on identifying needs, interests

the help of people from those language communities ( RWS, 2017 ). Designers and implementers need to overcome many technical issues with such innovations. Additionally, ethical challenges arise. Values-sensitive approaches to humanitarian innovation recommend identifying ethical questions as innovations are conceived, developed, implemented and diffused ( Smith, forthcoming ). We propose that all stakeholders (e.g. humanitarian organisations, policy

The Politics of Information and Analysis in Food Security Crises

. , 2019 ; Kimetrica, 2020 ) but the PIN is contentious in many cases. And of course, without detailed knowledge of the behind-the-scenes politics, it is difficult to determine if the numbers are being pushed upwards (usually in search of greater resource allocation) or downwards (usually to minimise the extent of a crisis and improve appearances to domestic and international political stakeholders). Agencies, too, sometimes have interest in the numbers

, development, deployment and integration across social fields. Among these are stakeholder groups (such as regulators, civil society representatives, designers, data scientists, tech entrepreneurs and experts in cybersecurity, intellectual property and data-protection law) with differing priorities, values and skillsets, and consequently different approaches to datafication. In the context of fashion, Wissinger (2018: 779) notes that her interviews reveal that ‘a laissez

Such dilemmas included whether to preserve hospital capacities for those who were most likely to survive (i.e. younger people) versus prioritising the needs of the most vulnerable (i.e. older people), or prioritising public health measures to

to the 2016 US election ( Silverman & Alexander, 2016 ). In humanitarian crises, however, the more common driver of disinformation creation appears to be partisanship and political influence. Humanitarian emergencies are often heavily politicised and multiple stakeholders seek to influence their representation in the news media and elsewhere online. Some of these groups are willing to spend considerable resources to create fabricated websites and social media content: a continuation of long traditions of propaganda. Russian

the Chief makes the mistake of going through the Luma he has another thing coming!’ In the weeks that followed, Kambians blamed local stakeholders and the Chief for failing to communicate the closure. A slogan painted on one of the local coffee shops ( attaya base ) in Bamoi – ‘Ebola Phase II: it didn’t work’ – connected the riots with broader suspicions surrounding the outbreak and authorities’ complicity. The new case had
