About this book


The volume examines the past and potential role played by both UN peacekeepers as well as other military forces in the provision of humanitarian aid. There is also an in-depth discussion of the 'downside' or possible dilemmas of resorting to military capacities as well as a case-study of the recent international response in the Sudan with a view toward breaking new ground in the delivery of humanitarian relief in countries torn by civil war.
