This important book is a primer on the basics of humanitarian action. The ten chapters—each written by a leading professional—introduce the essential issues facing humanitarian workers as they confront both natural and man-made crises.
Designed for students, teachers, practitioners, policy-makers, journalists, and other professionals, Basics of Humanitarian Missions covers fundamental concepts, contexts, and problems, in settings that range from floods and earthquakes to medical emergencies, civil strife, and forced migration.
