Since the late 1980s the international relief community has seen its resources and personnel stressed beyond capacity by humanitarian crises - large-scale man made catastrophes such as the conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Chechnya, Zaire, Kosovo and elsewhere. Covering topics ranging from emergency public health measures to the psychological trauma of relief workers, this volume presents both a seasoned assessment of current practice and proposals for improving operational efforts in the future.
