Humanitarian emergency assistance is a vital, but complex activity.

This book analyses New Humanitariansim and is effectiveness in Sierra Leone - the test case for the policy. Placing the experience of Sierra Leone in context with other states, including Iraq and Sudan, Tanja Sch©·umer outlinesthe dramatic impact that NewHumanitarianism has for the future of international humanitarian policy
