Par : Hossam Elsharkawi (expert associé) THE UNBEARABLE PRESSURES ON HUMANITARIANS: A SURVIVAL GUIDE

Has the world entered a ‘new normal’ not compatible with our principles or compass? Are our activities and commitments straying from our raison d'être?

Ebola response teams were asked to deliver life saving aid in Western Africa while some of their own authorities enacted policies that made it difficult to come home and not be stigmatized and ostracized; Gaza humanitarian response teams were threatened by the population they aim to serve as the local communities perceived/experienced an extreme case of lack of protection; Another war coalition emerges in Northern Iraq and Syria, that makes it impossible for humanitarian nationals of over 50 nations to operate in that region. The Humanitarians become easy targets for armed opposition groups. How much more could be tolerated?
