COORDINATION

Coordination of the child protection (CP) response to Sudanese refugees in South Sudan has been mainly driven by the field.

The Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs (ARRA) participates in the CP working group and in the camp level coordination meetings.

report Save the Children

Hedinn Haldorsson is part of our Greece Emergency Response Team. On World Humanitarian Day, he reports on the situation on the ground on the Greek island of Lesvos.

“There was war in Syria but at least there was food. I never imagined that I’d be worse off here, in Europe. This is not the Europe I expected. This is not humane at all”.

He is standing in front of me, in a surreal setting, an informal refugee settlement on a hill on the island of Lesvos. A Syrian refugee, father of three.

But it will also explore effects of humanitarian action (in historical and contemporary context) that tend not to be captured by the conventional discourse on effectiveness.
