From the Paper:

"The tsunami that unleashed such terrible loss upon the peoples of Southern Asia and East Africa has been followed in its wake by an unprecedented international relief effort. Despite that, states, IGOs, NGOs, and business networks have not been particularly successful in alleviating the suffering of the survivors of 26 December, 2004. This paper examines the role of the various aforementioned actors in the ongoing relief effort and assesses their relative contributions."
