3 July 2015 (IRIN ), Facing what its commissioner-general Pierre Krähenbühl called its “most serious financial crisis ever,” this week the UN agency for Palestinian refugees let go some half of its international personnel. What, if anything, can be done to fix the frequently broke agency?

The most important aid organisation you've never heard of
2 July 2015 (IRIN ), Saudi Arabia has quietly launched a new behemoth in the international aid world.

1 July 2015 (IRIN ), Charities and NGOs like to promote transparency and good governance in the countries they work, but how much do we really know about where and how aid money is really spent?

29 June 2015 (IRIN ), Parliamentary and local elections take place in Burundi today after two months of protests and in defiance of international calls for the polls to be postponed. Here our correspondent, Désiré Nimubona, reflects on the challenges of operating as an independent journalist in a country where all media voices except those operated by the state have been silenced.

26 June 2015 (IRIN ), The Islamic State's daring attack on the Kurdish Syrian city of Kobani has left thousands of those who returned displaced again, including over 1,000 stranded on the border, and could derail plans for a major demining and reconstruction operations in the city.

Shining light on refugees' energy needs
22 June 2015 (IRIN ), When refugee crises strike, energy provision is well down the list of priorities, and ad hoc solutions tend to persist for years, even when they are unsatisfactory, expensive, damaging to the environment, and in all ways unsustainable.

MERS’s best friend is ignorance, so it’s time to wise up
16 June 2015 (IRIN ), The full story of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is yet to be told. Would South Korea now be in the grip of one of the disease’s largest ever outbreaks if more had been done sooner to unravel its mysteries?

Do bright ideas in aid need checks and balances?
16 June 2015 (IRIN ), Innovation has been a buzzword in aid for the last five years, but now experts say it is time to move beyond the hype and lay down a formal ethical framework. But what safeguards do you need and how do you regulate aid innovation without killing off its spark?

With the start of Refugee Week today, culminating in World Refugee Day on Saturday, that focus is only set to intensify. So what exactly is a refugee?

Turn on the taps to defeat the next Ebola
15 June 2015 (IRIN ), It is a cruel irony that many of the top doctors and nurses in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone will not be around to help rebuild their health systems in the wake of Ebola, having succumbed themselves to the virus. For those that are, the biggest challenges are likely to be electricity, sanitation, and, most of all, water.

Forgive and forget? Amnesty dilemma haunts Uganda
12 June 2015 (IRIN ), Should rebels who turn themselves in be allowed to escape justice for potentially heinous crimes if it might foster peace, or must they be prosecuted even at the risk of discouraging reconciliation?

Making accountability accountable
10 June 2015 (IRIN ), Who are the clients of aid agencies? Is it the donors, who pay the bills, or the people being helped? For all the talk of participation and community-led initiatives, when do people on the receiving end of aid get a chance to say what they think? And then, when they are invited to give their views, what difference does it make? Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines was ripe for such reflection:
