This panel welcomes papers and case studies that critically explore the current status, application, and theoretical considerations of the 'nexus approach' in contexts of both immediate emergencies and protracted humanitarian crises.

Discussions and programming efforts to incorporate the dual humanitarian-development nexus approach, which aims to enhance linkages and coordination of actions between the two, have been ongoing for over fifty years. More recently, since the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, the triple nexus approach has come to the forefront, promoting the incorporation of peace to develop a triple humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) nexus. The main idea is that without peace, humanitarian and development efforts cannot be sustainable.

The interpretation and integration of 'peace' within other forms of assistance persist as contested issues, stirring diverse views, challenges, and advancements among stakeholders. Similarly, climate change, which is predicted to continue yielding severe humanitarian consequences, calls for an integrative or nexus approach to assistance delivery. With these considerations in mind, we invite scholars and practitioners to contribute their insights on nexus approaches to current and future humanitarian actions, elucidating the associated challenges, opportunities, and contemporary examples for progressing towards ending the need.

Depending on the quantity and quality of contributions, panel discussions may culminate in a special issue publication or book proposal. This endeavor will further stimulate dialogue and collaboration on dual, triple, and other nexus approaches within the humanitarian sector.
