Violent conflict brings together two seemingly disparate groups:
humanitarians and soldiers. This mixes and convolutes agendas,
blurring lines that are often perceived to be sacrosanct. Delving
deeply into the history and reasons of why these two groups work in
close proximity, this study provide a unique insight into the
history, ethical dilemmas and policy conundrums when aid workers
operate close to the military. Using Afghanistan as a case study,
analytical rigour, deep primary research and "field" knowledge are
combined in an exceptional contribution to this important area.
This book gives scholars and practitioners alike a nuanced
perspective on the challenges faced by aid workers, military
personnel and decision-makers alike in countries affected by
violent conflicts, hosting foreign military interventions and
receiving international aid. -- .

management topics that are essential for overseeing programmes.
