At a recent workshop on starvation crimes organised by Alex de Waal from World Peace Foundation (WPF) and Global Rights Compliance (GRC), Mark Duffield gave a stimulating talk on “counter humanitarian war” and new openings for humanitarian activism. Mark’s thought-provoking talk rang an important chord for UAI in relation to citizen mobilisation. As you will see, he ends his talk with a call for a new era of humanitarian activism in support of the struggle for social justice.
A blog based on his talk can be found here:
