Relief aid, yes, but
Abstract Empirical evidence shows that some governments increasingly hinder relief organizations from operating in their territory. Through a case study, we analyze problems encountered by four organizations. We find that state fragility explains the tendency of governments to restrict relief organizationsí activities. This study helps organizations in their efforts towards preparedness.
