Communicating in an International Emergency: Northern Iraq from 1991

  • Tom Hardie-Forsyth


This chapter is a personal appraisal of the way the quality of and commitment to communication could determine, sometimes fatally, the handling of complex emergencies. It draws mainly upon my experiences in northern Iraq, both initially (in 1991) as an army officer with the British contingent of the Safe Haven operation and subsequendy (from 1991–5) in my work with voluntary agencies and others in the region.
