Front Cover
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 1999 - Political Science - 161 pages
This text offers experiences of aid providers in war-torn societies to show that international assistance often reinforces divisions. It calls for a redesign of assistance programmes, and argues that opportunities exist for aid workers to support the processes by which societies disengage from war.
