NGOs and Humanitarian Reform: Mapping Study – Afghanistan Report.

This paper analyses the challenging context in which aid is delivered in Afghanistan, arguing that humanitarian reform issues “pale in comparison to redressing the credibility of the humanitarian enterprise and addressing the potentially escalating assistance and protection needs of civilians caught up in conflict and crisis”. The author notes that there is little humanitarian consensus, and perhaps even less humanitarian space, in Afghanistan today, divergent from previous phases in the conflict; this is, he argues, a result of a complex set of factors, most notably the nature of the war, the international community’s objectives in the country and their links to the state-building enterprise that blurs the lines between political and neutral actors.
