About the product

Political Sources of Humanitarian Emergencies analyses the meaning and causes of humanitarian crises. Many analyses see primordial ethnic hatreds as the main source of humanitarian crises; this publication argues otherwise. It is an interesting contribution to the subject of humanitarian emergencies. The publication is part of the Research for Action series which discusses policy-oriented research on the main strategic issues of development and international cooperation, as well as on the interaction between domestic and global changes.
