In the first of two episodes on the ‘localisation agenda’ in humanitarianism and international development, we explore commitments made at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 towards localisation, and the progress made on these commitments in South Sudan. The episode looks into the histories of NGOs in the country, the challenges faced by NGO founders and the importance of working with and through South Sudanese organisations. Dr Naomi Pendle focuses on public authority, patterns of violence and local governance in South Sudan. Naomi has conduced ethnographic research in South Sudan since 2009, with a focus on Nuer and Dinka communities. Dr Lydia Tanner leads The Research People. She has delivered more than 40 research and consultancy projects for local, national and international NGOs and donors. Lydia completed a PhD in information engineering at Oxford University. Mr Malish John Peter is a researcher, evaluation and public policy expert with 14 years of experience in M&E, policy analysis, research and program management across sectors including health, agriculture, food security and livelihoods, civil society, governance and education. Alice Robinson is a PhD student at the Department of International Development at LSE. Her doctoral research focuses on the histories and everyday practices of local NGOs in South Sudan, and their role in humanitarian response.
