35. Summary


Read the quote and remind participants that ethical decision-making about the provision of humanitarian assistance to refugees and displaced persons is not work that has to be or should be done alone. Careful consideration of the consequences of management decision and actions and exploration of ethical options is likely to have better short- and long-term results.

"In emergencies the officials of powerful institutions are called upon to address the needs and dreams of powerless and dispossessed populations.... An approach centering on supporting people's own efforts and on working together with them can make this work more effective and less stressful."

- Ken Wilson
