  • Synopsis
    This Working Paper reproduces articles and essays which first appeared in the quarterly journal Development in Practice. The first part features papers by scholars, agency representatives, practitioners, and policy-makers on the ethical and legal dimensions of humanitarian endeavour. The second part comprises a collection of original essays which were commissioned from some of the highly experienced practitioners in the field of development and conflict who attended the 1996 Symposium entitled Building Bridges in Southern Africa: Conflict, Reconstruction, and Reconciliation in Times of Change, which was co-sponsored by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) and Oxfam's South Africa Office. The two sections address conflict-related themes from a range of perspectives, and together paint an informative picture of the moral and practical complexities of crisis and intervention.Contributors include Michel Chossudovsky, Jenny Pearce, Hugo Slim, Juan Somavia, and Derek Summerfield. The paper concludes with an annotated bibliography, listing current and classic publications on the subject of development work in the context of crisis and armed conflict.
