A trap of neutrality

Carsten Wieland IB: Syria and the Neutrality Trap. The Dilemmas of Delivering Humanitarian Aid through Violent Regimes

SYRIA: Carsten Wieland uncovers a large number of mistakes in the Western donor countries' handling of the humanitarian crisis during the Syrian civil war. He also mentions how rebel forces have deliberately starved local people to attract aid: Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Rwanda.
