About this item

Humanitarianism as a moral concept and an organized practice has become a major factor in world society. It channels an enormous amount of resources and serves as an argument for different kinds of interference into the "internal affairs" of countries and regions. At the same time, and for these very reasons, it is an ideal testing ground for successful and unsuccessful cooperation across borders.

This book examines the multiple humanitarianisms of today as a testing ground for new ways of global cooperation. It studies general trends in the contemporary transformation of humanitarianism and investigates individual cases of how humanitarian actors cooperate with others on the ground. This volume offers a highly innovative, empirically informed account of global humanitarianism from the point of view of cooperation research. The internationally renowned contributors analyse broad trends and present case studies based on meticulous fieldwork.
