In conversation with the Kahkaha project in Lebanon: an effective example of a Southern-led initiative.

Southern Responses to Displacement

‘One cannot come from outside and decide people’s needs on the basis of assumptions or experiences lived somewhere else.’

In this blog post Dr Estella Carpi interviews Lina Khoury, the founder of the Kahkaha project in Lebanon.  The Kahkaha project aims to blur the boundaries between urban and Palestinian refugee camp spaces.   To do this the project promotes infrastructure for sport and play  within and outside refugee camps with the aim of achieving social participation and everyday security for Palestinian refugee children and youth.  The initiative is an example of what some international scholars have named South-South or Southern-led humanitarianism.  However, as emerges in the interview, Kahkaha’s work often departs from the mainstream humanitarian narrative and action.
