International Organizations and Civilian Protection : Power, Ideas and Humanitarian Aid in Conflict Zones Hardback
Despite the proliferation of international humanitarian and human rights laws since the end of the Cold War, there has been an erosion of the practical immunity of civilians caught up in armed conflicts.
Here, Sreeram Chaulia explores the attempts of international humanitarian organizations to relieve the plight of these civilians, offering a unique insight into the motivations and effects of these organizations at the grass-roots level in conflict zones.
By using a theoretical framework to examine the realities of humanitarian assistance, this analysis offers invaluable conclusions for those involved in the study of Politics and International Relations, as well as those concerned with practicalities of conflict resolution and peacekeeping.
