Negotiating Access to Crisis Zones: NYC Thursday, February 9th

Announced by…

Medecins Sans Frontieres/
Doctors Without Borders

At Any Price?
Negotiating Access to Crisis Zones

Thursday, Feb 9th in NYC

Tishman Auditorium
66 W 12th Street
New York, NY

Medical humanitarian organizations and human rights groups often operate in the same crisis zones but have different aims and approaches to negotiating access.

Join panelists from Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Human Rights Watch (HRW), and the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University (SIPA) for a discussion of the dilemmas faced by both humanitarian and human rights organizations trying to work in crisis zones. How different are the two approaches? Are they compatible on the ground? How are decisions made about establishing projects? And what compromises are acceptable when negotiating access to populations in immediate danger?
