Massive, shocking violations of human rights are taking place in conflicts, crises, and emergencies around the world. There is broad agreement that human rights must be protected in the field, on the ground, where prople are vulnerable. But how is this to be done? There is a crisis of protection world-wide. Human rights and humanitarian organizations are in a quandry. They have all sounded the alarm. But how can protection be extended to those at risk, whether it be children, women, civilians, non-combattants, or the victims of oppression and violence? This is one of the first books to examine the need for protection in the field, survey the experiences of the different human rights and humanitarian organizations, and assess what works and what does not work. For the most part it reveals, sadly, a crisis in protection efforts in the field. But in doing so, it will, hopefully, spur on greater efforts for strengthened protection in the field. More effective protection of human rights is its quest.
