    Abstract

    Event synopsis: The frequency and scale of humanitarian disasters is increasing, as reflected in their high visibility in the global media. Whilst still responding generously to humanitarian emergencies, as demonstrated recently by public donations following Typhoon Haiyan, the British public seems to be increasingly critical of and reluctant to commit to on-going support of humanitarian and international development agencies. The humanitarian and development sector is facing continuing pressures and criticism – the recent Panorama programme (2 Dec 2013, Where's Our Aid Money Gone?) being the latest example of the onslaught. In these highly challenging times for the humanitarian sector and humanitarianism more generally, it seems ever more urgent to understand how the public relates and responds to humanitarian crises and international development causes.
