The 2004 tsunami in Aceh broke out in the middle of a conflict of secession. The disaster set in motion a dynamic that broke through the political, social and economic paralysis.

introduction

On December 26, 2004, a huge seaquake shook the Indian Ocean and brought the Indonesian province of Aceh, located on the island of Sumatra on the north-western edge of the country, into the media focus. The tsunami disaster broke out in the midst of an armed secession conflict and set a dynamic in motion that broke through the political, social and economic paralysis as a result of failed peace negotiations, violence and the war economy and initiated transformation processes that continue to this day.
