In 2012, Liu Scholar Omer Aijazi and Liu Scholar alumni Dilnoor Panjwani received a co-authorship grant to explore the role of religion and gender in disaster recovery after the 2010 monsoon floods in Pakistan. They conducted their fieldwork using the grant in partnership with the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-Habitat) in Pakistan. One of the papers they wrote and submitted to the Liu, titled “Religion in Spaces of Social Disruption: Re-Reading the Public Transcript of Disaster Relief in Pakistan,” has been published in the special issue of the International Journal of Mass Emergencies and Disasters. The special issue titled “Religious Actors in Disaster Relief” aims to present academic perspectives on religion after natural disasters in Asia for policymakers and humanitarian organizations.
