Philippines strives to end recruitment of child soldiers
20 May 2015 (IRIN ), The Philippines government has taken steps to make good on its pledged to stop the use of child soldiers by all official and non-state armed groups.

All at sea: what lies behind Southeast Asia’s migrant crisis?
15 May 2015 (IRIN ), The plight of thousands of migrants and asylum seekers from Myanmar and Bangladesh, left adrift without food and water for nearly a week, has all the hallmarks of a full-blown humanitarian crisis.

Beyond the body counts: Why murder rates matter to humanitarians

How serious are Guinea protests?
5 May 2015 (IRIN ), There appears to be little appetite for the Guinean opposition’s promised campaign of civil disobedience. However, deep-rooted ethnic tensions, suspicions over Ebola and simmering resentment for the security forces could still see pre-election protests boil over.

30 April 2015 (IRIN ), The arrest in Tanzania of the leader of one of the longest-standing insurgencies in Africa’s Great Lakes region marks a step forward for justice and accountability but is unlikely to bring an end to the transnational network he leads.

Is it really time to call off search-and-rescue in Nepal?
30 April 2015 (IRIN ), The Nepalese government called off search-and-rescue today in favour of dead body removal, just as a 15-year-old boy was pulled out of the rubble alive. Five days after the earthquake, is it too soon to stop trying to find survivors?

Can you hear me now? Why good communication is critical to the Nepal quake response

Does community-driven aid need a makeover?
27 April 2015 (IRIN ), Community-Driven Development (CDD) instinctively makes sense – give people the power to determine and control their own development projects and you get better results, right? Wrong. This briefing explores why, at least in some post-conflict countries, CDD doesn’t deliver as promised.

Why Nepal response will be so hard
