There is little continuity between who is considered to be in the humanitarian sector and who is on its periphery, who are “traditional” actors and who qualifies as a “new” actor. As a result, this study has constructed a lexicon that explains what is meant by the various terms used. Though it is not often recognized, there is and has long been a diverse group of actors who have played a role in providing humanitarian relief and assistance locally, nationally, and transnationally.
