About this book

This book analyses trends and changes in the European Union’s (EU) humanitarian aid policy, by focusing on the performance of Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs). NGOs have developed strong relationships with international institutions but have also maintained direct interaction with EU member states. The result is a multi-layered process in which national interests, common values, universal principles and global duties meet and interact. By combining a deepening of the theoretical debate with the use of empirical data on the funding of NGO projects by EU institutions and member states, the book significantly furthers our understanding of the complex relationship between these actors. It will appeal to students and scholars interested in EU politics, global security, and international aid, as well as practitioners in the humanitarian field.

Reviews

“This book is a timely and important discussion on the future of EU humanitarian aid policy. It manages to contribute to a wider theoretical debate by using rich empirical data on the funding of NGOs projects through EU institutions and member states. The book will be of interest beyond the specialised community.” (Florian Trauner, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium)

“In this timely book, Daniela Irrera sheds light on the connection between NGOs and humanitarian strategies, right when the global environment seems threatened by risks which traditional state policy cannot fully cope with. The book is required reading for anybody who wants to understand EU external relations and helps to appreciate the true impact of Europe in the world, going beyond the simple account of formal institutions.” (Filippo Andreatta, University of Bologna, Italy)
