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.

A marriage of convenience: the UK military and NGOs
3 March 2015 (IRIN ), It's an interesting moment for the UK armed forces. Currently their biggest overseas deployment is not military at all, in the normal sense of the world, but humanitarian, as part of Operation Gritrock, fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone. There they are working alongside civilian health staff and NGOs, and under the leadership of a civilian official from the overseas development ministry.
