Summary
This title examines the often discordant relationship between states and international non-governmental organisations working in the humanitarian sector. INGOs aiming to provide assistance to populations suffering from the consequences of conflicts and other human-made disasters work in the midst of very politically sensitive local dynamics. The involvement of these non-political international actors can be seen as a threat to states which see civil war as a state of exception where it is the government's prerogative to act outside of '.normal' legal or moral boundaries. Drawing on first hand experience of humanitarian operations in contexts of civil war, this book explores how the relationship works in practice, and how often clashing priorities can be mediated
