Accountability in Humanitarian Interventions has always been a major issue for the humanitarian actors. Since 1996, when the Joint Evaluation of the International Response to the Genocide in Rwanda was published, a number of initiatives have been developed to improve both the way humanitarian agencies operate, and their accountability. But what is accountability? And why is it important? Who are we accountable to, and for what purpose? And more importantly, how can we ensure accountability in the midst of a humanitarian emergency? This session of Disaster Clinic will have fundamental discussion on Accountability in Humanitarian Interventions to conceptualise and explore answers for the above mentioned questions.
