    The most vulnerable displaced people also need food, shelter, basic hygiene, and essential items. Humanitarian organisations call for the protection of civilians, unimpeded access to those in need, and the respect of International Humanitarian Law and humanitarian principles, which should extend to healthcare staff and infrastructure.   First, I present a brief and oversimple sketch of the objective and subjective changes in the broader milieu of international relations as they relate to humanitarian intervention. Second, and more substantially, I survey and analyze the arguments justifying or opposing the notion of humanitarian intervention from realist and liberal perspectives.

Humanitarian aid spans a wide range of activities, including providing food aid, shelter, education, healthcare or protection.

You will learn about the origins and sources of this body of law, as well as to which situations it applies.
