HPCR's Live Web Seminars

This Live Seminar (originally broadcast on December 16, 2010) examined the challenges and opportunities for humanitarian actors in Sudan. On the eve of a referendum in southern Sudan and amid concerns regarding the potential for renewed violence, this Seminar addressed the following questions:

--What challenges, if any, does the situation in Sudan pose to maintaining humanitarian principles—neutrality, impartiality, independence, and humanity?
--To what extent, if at all, does the line between humanitarian action and development get blurred in long-term conflicts or other situations of insecurity?
--How, if at all, do interactions between international tribunals, donor states, and domestic governments affect the delivery of humanitarian aid?

These questions were answered by reference to contemporary developments in Sudan.

Naz Modirzadeh (Associate Director of HPCR) and Elizabeth Holland (Program Associate) hosted the discussion.
