MISADVENTURES IN HUMANITARIAN AID

a panel discussion with

NICHOLAS DETORRENTE
Executive Director, Doctors Without Borders, USA

and

DAVID RIEFF
Senior Fellow, World Policy Institute and author of A Bed for the Night: Humanitarianism in Crisis

Moderated by

SHERLE SCHWENNINGER
Senior Fellow, World Policy Institute

Humanitarian relief organizations have become major protagonists in the humanitarian crises of the past decade. In so doing, they have moved from their founding principle of political neutrality, which gave them access to victims of war, to a posture of calling for intervention to stop civil wars and ethnic conflicts. But has this advocacy come at too high a price? Have humanitarian organizations now put themselves in a position of appearing to be taking sides in a conflict thereby jeopardizing their access to victims? And has the humanitarian movement allowed itself to be hijacked by the major powers, becoming at times a fig leaf for actions by these powers and at other times an excuse for inaction.

Thursday, December 5, 2002, 6:00-7:30 p.m. Swayduck Auditorium, First Floor, 65 Fifth Avenue (between East 13-14th). Admission is free.

RSVP 212-229-5808 ext. 4272 to reserve seating or
