Latin America faces up to urban ‘war’
11 May 2015 (IRIN ), From the privileged setting of World Economic Forum talks in an exclusive, well-protected hotel in Mexico, the crime rocking Latin American cities can seem like a remote problem.

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?

Migrant smugglers profit from Libya's chaos
23 April 2015 (IRIN ), Most of the 1,750 migrants to have drowned in the Mediterranean this year were sub-Saharan Africans who boarded smugglers’ boats in Libya.

Is Kenya’s security policy the real enemy within?
21 April 2015 (IRIN ), The Kenyan government has threatened to eject 350,000 Somali refugees and even to build a wall along its entire border with Somalia, but perhaps the real enemies within are poor governance and stalled police reforms

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.
