Is Greece right to rein in refugee volunteerism?
19 January 2016 (IRIN ), Last week, five young European volunteers were arrested on the Greek island of Lesvos and later charged with people smuggling. Is this part of an overly officious crackdown on groups that are just trying to help, or a timely effort to rein in an amateur rescue effort that amounts to a dangerous free-for-all?

Briefing: Will a political dispute become a humanitarian disaster in Nepal?
21 December 2015 (IRIN ), Eight months after a huge earthquake devastated Nepal and killed almost 9,000 people, an import-crippling border blockade provoked by a political dispute has sent prices skyrocketing and is stalling efforts to rebuild.

4 December 2015 (IRIN ), The recent attack on MSF’s hospital in Kunduz was the latest in a long list of breaches of international humanitarian law and led to a clamour of calls for more to be done to prevent such violations.

The Quiet Americans
9 November 2015 (IRIN ), Kitting out a Nigerien army unit is not what most humanitarians would consider the best response to Boko Haram.
