This book is the result of a strong collaboration between the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations and Fordham University's Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs. It is a record of a series of distinguished lectures - speakers include President Mary Robinson, President Michael D. Higgins, high ranking staff from academia, the military, the United Nations and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies - that explored the current challenges to policy makers and humanitarian actors as they focus their efforts on larger and more complex emergencies. The contributors in this book identify both innovative measures in addressing established problems and address hitherto under-researched, emerging issues.

"It will no longer be sufficient to train people to run after the bus of disaster but to seek to understand why it is all happening. For what we teach after all is the foundation of policy, and subverting the taken for granted, the authoritarian and the socially dangerous must be the core values of a university."-President Michael Higgins
