Simon Levine

Research Fellow, Humanitarian Policy Group

Simon Levine is a Research Fellow at the Humanitarian Policy group at ODI, London, where he now worries most about livelihoods, protracted crises and resilience. He worked on a variety of development programmes for NGOs for many years, usually in war and post-war contexts such as Mozambique, Cambodia and Burundi. He then spent nine years living in Uganda, working across Eastern and Central Africa and the Horn of Africa specialising in livelihoods, vulnerability analysis and early response. In Uganda he also developed a passion for land rights, on which he worked extensively. Since returning to England in 2010 to work at ODI, he continues to want the humanitarian system to get fixed and wishes that more research was able to contribute something that actually helped that to happen.
