Description - The International Committee of the Red Cross by David P. Forsythe
The Red Cross is arguably the most important and influential non-governmental organisation in the world. One of the few international organisations which is seen as genuinely neutral, its members provide humanitarian intervention in conflicts across the globe, risking their lives to provide medical relief and to guarantee the rights of prisoners. It is a notoriously secretive organisation but this short and accessible introduction explains its history and structure as well as examining current debates and controversies about its future role. Written by a world authority on the subject, this is the ideal introduction for students of international organisations, humanitarian intervention, international health policy and global governance
