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.

"One false step in this minefield – be it an action or words – can set off charges of bias or prejudice, and ultimately stymie humanitarian access to people in urgent need of protection and assistance, whatever side of the frontline they may be on." - Jamie McGoldrick
