In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Maintaining Humanitarian Space in Conflict Zones In his long and distinguished career at the United Nations, Sergio Vieira de Mello held many titles; one that was very dear to his heart was Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs. In this section are chapters by three other international statesmen who have also held that critical post; they offer reflections from the very epicenter of human disaster management. Jan Egeland, Jan Eliasson, and Peter Hansen discuss the historical, legal, and moral bases for securing and maintaining safe, humanitarian space in conflict zones. Jacques Forster, from the International Committee of the Red Cross, ponders the growing dilemma facing humanitarian workers in an era when the rhetoric of “a global war against terrorism” makes the traditional neutrality and impartiality of humanitarian agencies difficult to sustain and even suspect to some. cahill.qxp 10/1/2004 1:36 PM Page 127 cahill.qxp 10/1/2004 1:36 PM Page 128 ...
