Syrian aid groups seek greater role
18 March 2015 (IRIN ), Local NGOs and diaspora groups involved in frontline aid delivery in Syria want more recognition from the wider humanitarian community as well as the chance to access direct funding, rather than working merely as silent implementers for international NGOs. Limited communication due in part to language and cultural barriers, but also to concerns around terrorism, has led to parallel and duplicated operations, competition for donor funding, staff poaching and a general feeling of mistrust.

UN has failed Syria: NGOs
12 March 2015 (IRIN ), The United Nations Security Council has “failed” the Syrian people, some of the world’s largest NGOs have said. A “report card” by more than 20 aid organisations working in and around Syria – including Oxfam, Save the Children and World Vision – gives the UN Security Council (UNSC) and wider world a fail grade in its attempts to stop the killing and to get aid to those most in need.

The technology behind Syria's lights out campaign
12 March 2015 (IRIN ), Widely published satellite images of Syria’s steady loss of night-time light during its four-year civil war cost only $300 to produce. Can they help humanitarians assess crises better?

What does the Boko Haram/IS alliance mean?
10 March 2015 (IRIN ), Nigeria’s insurgent group Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet's Teachings and Jihad), better known as Boko Haram, has declared allegiance to Islamic State (IS), the group formerly known as ISIS. While commentators – perhaps some with the benefit of hindsight - say this had been on the cards, what does it actually mean?

A new idea to keep British aid flowing
6 March 2015 (IRIN ), A new report has shown that millions of pounds of British aid money has been blocked by banks. Could setting up a new parliamentary body make all the difference?

What refugees really think of aid agencies
5 March 2015 (IRIN ), Aid agencies are partial, unaccountable and potentially corrupt, and they fail to meet people's most pressing needs, according to a new report based on focus group interviews with refugees and other aid recipients in the Middle East. Other concerns included a lack of consultation about people’s needs, a failure to protect the most vulnerable, confusion over which agency was responsible for what, duplicated aid, as well as instances where help was perceived to be withheld or prioritised due to political or religious affiliation.

19 February 2015 (IRIN ), The European Union has cut its migrant rescue service on the basis it will 'deter' potential migrants and criminals. So far it is clearly not working.
