Share At Any Price? Negotiating Access to Crisis Zones

Event Details


In many crises, aid agencies are only able to provide assistance through negotiations — with armed groups, health authorities, community leaders — and compromising basic principles is sometimes the price paid for being able to act. These humanitarian negotiations are life-and-death issues for people in need, but they also raise troubling political and ethical dilemmas for the organizations engaged in them. Join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Mercy Corps for a live panel discussion that will explore these issues from headquarters and on-the-ground perspectives.  Moderated by Oregon Public Broadcasting's David Miller, the program will feature experienced MSF and Mercy Corps staff members who will share firsthand experiences from overseas assignments. Panelists will describe the often complicated process of negotiating as they struggle to define what compromises are acceptable in order to provide lifesaving aid to people in crisis zones.

This event is free, fully accessible, and open to the public.
