    ICRC Director of Operations
    Hear ICRC's Pierre Krähenbühl and CSIS's Ambassador William J. Garvelink discussion of the "The Future of Humanitarian Action", the latest edition of the International Review of the Red Cross, a quarterly publication published by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). 
    The international community is experiencing serious challenges to the humanitarian aid system. These include the direct targeting of humanitarian personnel, the rise of new actors, new 'megatrends' of disasters related to climate change and migration, advances in internet and communication technology and the militarization of aid. ICRC Director of Operations Pierre Krähenbühl will launch this latest edition of the Review, which explores these and other related themes, and complement it with his own global operational perspective. Ambassador Garvelink will then guide this important discussion about the future of humanitarianism.
