Since the late 1980s the international relief community has seen its resources and personnel stressed beyond capacity by humanitarian crises - such as Somalia, Bosnia, Rwand, Chechya, and Zaire. Waged within collapsing states, political and ethinc strife targets civilians, causes mass population dislocation and widespread human rights abuses, and impedes the efforts of relief organizations to respond effectively. Covering topics ranging from emergency public health measures to the psychological trauma of relief workers, this volume presents both a seasoned assessment of current practice and proposals for improving operational efforts in the future.
