Oxford Energy Seminar Series – Week 2 TT24: Sustainable Energy in Refugee Camps: Technologies, Politics, and Governance

Energy is everywhere in refugee camps: in the homes, businesses, and community spaces of refugees. However, this topic is rarely discussed in academic or practitioner contexts. To understand more about this important issue, this seminar will present ethnographic research from the journal article on the ‘Secret Life of Energy in Refugee Camps’, as well as outlining findings from the ‘State of the Humanitarian Energy Sector’ (SOHES) report by the Global Platform for Action on Sustainable Energy in Displacement Settings (GPA), hosted by the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
