Humanitarian Hub Podcast – Season 1 Episode 4
In the fourth episode of the SOAS Humanitarian Hub Podcast, Jake Tacchi talks with Dr. Claudia Seymour about her book: ‘The Myth of International Protection, War and Survival in the Congo’.
Dr. Seymour’s book presents a highly engaging, and very readable, amalgamation of her own experiences working within the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)as a child protection adviser, alongside her subsequent PhD research. We discussed many themes that arose from the book, as well as the difficulties of moving between humanitarianism and academia.
