Guerre, santé et humanitarisme

War, Health and Humanitarianism


16th June 2017, 11am-5.30pm
Weston Library, Lecture Theatre

‘War, Health and Humanitarianism’ brings together historians studying conflicts from the  medieval period to the  modern world in order to discuss the potential impact of historical  research on present day policy.  Looking at conflicts from the medieval period to the  twentieth century, this symposium
discusses humanitarian interventions which seek to mitigate the suffering  in war of both  combatants and civilians. What motivates humanitarian actors and organizations, like the Red Cross and Oxfam? How effective are they? What defines humanitarianism in a world of nation states? The closing session will reflect on the day’s papers and we will aim to discuss a variety of questions and controversies, including : Michael Barnett’s Empire of Humanity (2011) argues that ‘ages of humanitarianism’ began in 1800. How can we define humanitarianism and how does history from the medieval period to  the contemporary world help us to understand change and continuity in motivations and policies? Is political neutrality feasible or necessary?  Why are there so many national and international humanitarian organisations?  How have relief and development organisations competed and collaborated to mitigate  suffering from conflicts?  How have changing forms of warfare influenced humanitarian practices?
