US Africa Command Humanitarian and Health Activities Conference

This report, describing the discussions that took place at the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) ‘Humanitarian and Health Activities Conference’, neatly illustrates the degree to which military actors have adopted humanitarian language, and development activities, in order to implement stabilisation operations.  Such use of humanitarian language for explicitly political purposes has raised fears within the aid community that ‘humanitarian space’ is closing, that humanitarians will increasingly be perceived as adjuncts to military or political objectives instead of the neutral, independent and impartial actors that they seek to be.
