Europe took a small step back from the moral abyss tonight when EU leaders announced tripling the funding for its naval operation in the Mediterranean Sea in response to the tragic deaths of children there.

Equally important were the commitments from national governments to provide extra naval ships to patrol the sea between North Africa and southern Europe.

Fairfield, Conn. (April 21, 2015) — If current trends continue, 2,500 children could die in the Mediterranean this year unless politicians immediately restart rescue operations, Save the Children warns.

The charity is calling on European Union leaders meeting in Brussels Thursday to agree to restart search and rescue operations off the coast of Italy within 48 hours, on the scale of the previous Mare Nostrum operation.

This conference, jointly organised by the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) and Save the Children’s Humanitarian Affairs Team (HAT), will reflect on the evolution and consequence of existing approaches to understanding and improving humanitarian effectiveness. 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.
