A discussion of possible scenarios and contingency planning for the future
This Humanitarian Exchange event aims to take stock of the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
- How are humanitarian agencies preparing for a future that is bound to be of great uncertainty?
- Reflecting on meaning of the Afghanistan crisis from a humanitarian perspective, what does it tell us about the state of the humanitarian enterprise and the evolving debates on the relationship between humanitarian action and international political/military endeavours?
The discussion is based on a new report from the Feinstein Center, Afghanistan: Humanitarianism in Uncertain Times.
