"Since the late 1980s the international relief community has seen its resources and personnel stressed beyond capacity by humanitarian crises - large-scale man made catastrophes such as the conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Chechnya, Zaire, Kosovo and elsewhere. Covering topics ranging from emergency public health measures to the psychological trauma of relief workers, this volume presents both a seasoned assessment of current practice and proposals for improving operational efforts in the future.

They are also sharing knowledge and skills learned or honed abroad."--Jacket

Old age appears to be the least vulnerable period in a woman's life, which has much to do with the fact that her status within the household rises substantially with age. The final section provides a disaggregated view of the situation of older women, bringing out the circumstances which can increase vulnerability, and analyses their sources. Moving to a more activist perspective, the last paper of the volume outlines a set of concerns and goals for policy-makers, stressing the need for wide-ranging policy imperatives

"The authors in this volume explore a series of human insecurities that are created or exacerbated by new patterns of global interactions. The problems examined include migration, natural disasters, contagious diseases, and environmental change. All of the authors address the policy frameworks, national and international, that shape possible responses to the fresh threats to human security. Many of the challenges described here are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, these authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to global changes."--Jacket
