The Humanitarian Machine: Reflections from Practice

Author: Diego Fernandez Otegui, Daryl Yoder-Bontrager

"We have long awaited The Humanitarian Machine. Here it is with all the misgivings, dilemmas, contradictions and rewards that such lives consist of. Read and cherish these experiences because they reflect a truth and humanity that screams from the pages." – Phil O’Keefe, Professor, Northumbria University, UK

"Humanitarianism—as an ideology, practice, and industry—is too often shrouded in mythologies of heroism and selfless sacrifice. The grounded, self-critical reflections from humanitarian practitioners in this volume demystify humanitarian practice, probing its tensions and dilemmas together with its successes and failures. A valuable resource!" – Alain Epp Weaver, director of strategic planning, Mennonite Central Committee
