Overview

Wars and natural disasters--from the Balkans to the Sudan, and from Afghanistan to Central Africa--have increasingly placed humanitarian workers in the crossfire. Kevin M. Cahill has assembled an international team of renowned experts to offer a much-needed assessment of

the moral, legal and political dilemmas and consequences of humanitarian assistance.

Focusing on health issues, A Framework for Survival takes an unflinching look at the reality facing the nations and people involved, from refugees to relief organizations. In contrast to

conventional military, economic and geopolitical strategies, it suggests rational and effective solutions and foreign policy recommendations. With the collapse of many government infrastructures since the end of the Cold War, the success or failure of humanitarian efforts may, to a large

extent, define the world's chances for survival.
