Über diesen Titel


Book by Ferris Elizabeth G


" The Politics of Protection is a brilliant book, full of insights on one of the most complex tasks facing humanitarian organizations: how to protect civilians who find themselves caught in the midst of violence. Through her personal field experience, and thanks to a meticulous review of existing literature, Elizabeth Ferris captures the essence of, and the dilemmas surrounding, the notion of protection in situations of crisis and conflict. She details the efforts of humanitarian organizations to confront both new and old challenges, while simultaneously striving to enhance the protection of civilians affected by conflict and violence." --Pierre Gentile, Head of Unit, Protection of Civilian Population, International Committee of the Red Cross "Protection, the author says, is the essence of the humanitarian enterprise. Weaving masterfully into a compelling narrative the germane aspects of three major bodies of international law, copious and disparate initiatives of the United Nations, and the challenges confronting the humanitarians who would do protection today, she has done us all a profound service." --Antonio Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees "USAID welcomes this book as an excellent overview of humanitarian actors' engagement in protection, as well as the challenges and limits of our work. USAID is committed to promoting the protection of people affected by disasters and conflicts, and this book serves as a reminder of why this work is important, why it is difficult, and why we must continually strive to do it better." --Nancy Lindborg, USAID Assistant Administrator for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance
