Looking at conflicts from the medieval period to the contemporary world, this symposium discusses humanitarian interventions which seek to mitigate the suffering in war of both combatants and civilians. What motivates humanitarian actors and organizations, like the Red Cross and Oxfam? How effective are they? What defines humanitarianism in a world of nation states?
