Reflections on Humanitarian Action: Principles, Ethics and Contradictions


Product Information

Humanitarian intervention has become a serious subject for debate in light of recent conflicts across the globe. The debacle in Somalia, the policy of intervention in Bosnia, and the domestic conflicts in the West over intervention in Kosovo, have given rise to many complex questions surrounding humanitarian action. The contributors provide a systematic overview of the issues involved from a wide range of viewpoints. The book examines the central problems of humanitarian action: the judicial question and the right to humanitarian assistance; the ethical framework of humanitarian action; the challenge of coordination of all the actors involved in humanitarian action; the recipients in the aid chain; the link between aid, development and emergency action; the role of the media; and a practical evaluation of Operation Lifeline Sudan.
