Alex de Waal – Famine Crimes: politics and the disaster relief industry in Africa

Famine is preventable. The persistence of famine reflects political failings by African governments, western donors and international relief agencies. When freedom from famine is a basic right or a political imperative, famine is prevented. Case studies from Ethiopia to Botswana demonstrate African success–- but they are often not acknowledged or repeated. However, humanitarian intervention and other high-profile relief operations have failed. Progress lies in bringing the fight against famine into democratic politics, and calling to account those guilty of creating famines.   źródło opisu: https://www.foreignaffairs.com źródło okładki: https://www.foreignaffairs.com
