This article asks how success is defined and measured for humanitarian action and military interventions aimed at protecting civilians from violence and harm in situations of armed conflict. It starts by illustrating how humanitarian and military protection actors differ in their ability or willingness to mobilize coercive force to achieve their co...
With several rising powers emerging as new actors on the humanitarian scene, viewing all ‘emerging donors’ as a homogenous group inevitably undermines efforts to constructively engage with them.

Signatories agreed a decade ago that "food aid should only be provided when it is the most effective and appropriate form of assistance" and "should be based on an evaluation of needs by the recipient and the members" (Art. VIII). These goals have n...
