The Afghan Crisis: The Humanitarian Response Emergency Roundtable
Friday, 02 November 2001
On the 2nd November 2001 the Refugee Studies Centre held a 1-day emergency round table to provide an opportunity for over 60 experts on forced migration, humanitarian aid and Afghanistan to discuss the causes and consequences of the humanitarian crisis in the region. Rather than focus on the September 11th terrorist attacks and the consequent military action, the round table addressed the challenges for and the barriers to effective solutions. This constructive exchange of experience and expertise was aimed raising issues of importance and areas for further consideration for actors involved in the provision of assistance.
