The Limitations Of Humanitarian Relief Operations
Author: Tony Waters
Category: Political Science
View: 5922Bureaucratizing the Good Samaritan is about the organization of refugee relief programs. It describes the practical, political, and moral assumptions of the ?international refugee relief regime.? Tony Waters emphasizes that the agencies delivering humanitarian relief are embedded in rationalized bureaucracies whose values are determined by their institutional frameworks. The demand for ?victims? is observed in the close relation between the interests of the popular press and the decisions made by bureaucracies.This presents a paradox in all humanitarian relief organizations, but perhaps no more so than in the Rwanda Relief Operations (1994-96) which ended in the largest mass forced repatriation since the end of World War II. This crisis is analyzed with an assumption that there is a basic contradiction between the demands of the bureaucratized organization and the need of relief agencies to generate the emotional publicity to sustain the interest of northern donors. The book concludes by noting that if refugee relief programs are to become more effective, the connection between the press's emotional demands for ?victims? and the bureaucratic organizations's decision processes need to be identified and reassessed.

View: 6675The Good Samaritan reveals an insider’s look at the effort for perfection in the Christian character. While the faces and places are not historically factual, they are characteristically revealing of the story—a story every honest person can relate to because they have experienced it or know someone who has had similar experiences. From the pew to the pulpit, from the secular to most sacred, from the accepted to the unacceptable belief, this story summons courage—courage to lay aside pride, prejudice, and custom in disclosing the truthful condition of one’s belief. Working as a paramedic, deputy coroner, EMS director, pastor, and registered nurse—as well as seeing life from many perspectives—offered author Sonny Harris a panoramic view and evaluation of core beliefs. These beliefs and findings are shared throughout this story and the evangelistic blues written and performed by Harris. The music and the stories within that music find daily acceptance in different cultures across the globe. Being born and raised in the Southeast during the baby boom generation gave the author the courage to challenge custom, belief, and practice for what lays ahead for the church and the world.

View: 4619I wish to thank my daughters: Lynn for her insight and proof reading of my manuscript, and my other daughter Holly Isaacs for her attention to detail and proof reading. If you find any errors, blame them. I also wish to thank several who encouraged me to write this book, especially the Internal Revenue Service who showed me their true nature, (more about that in my next book Kill the Shoeshine Boy) because of them this book became a stress reliever for me. Of the many who supported me in this effort foremost is my friend Charles Ramsey who listened without being critical, assisted with encouragement, and helped mentally and financially. Last but not least I wish to express my gratitude to my wonderful wife, Carol J. Daulton, (also known as CJ) who put up with the late night hours and the time I spent writing and researching this book. Without her, this rock would have crumbled. To the good people of iUniverse Publishing and especially to Sarah Loury; thank you for your great assistance in walking me through the process. Look forward to my next books: Rags to Riches-the Dumb Luck Way and my nonfiction novel, Kill the Shoeshine Boy. Both will be published through iUniverse.
