    Humanitarian and development organizations working in conflict-affected settings have a particular responsibility to do no harm and contribute to the wellbeing of the population without bias. The highly complex, politicized realities of work in conflict- and post-conflict settings often require quick, pragmatic and results-oriented decisions, the foundations of which remain frequently implicit. Such decisions might follow an intrinsic logic or situational pragmatism rather than intensive deliberation.

What can we do to nurture and preserve international security and world peace?

    Poverty reduction on a large scale
    depends on empowering those who are most motivated to move
    out of poverty-poor people themselves. But if empowerment
    cannot be measured, it will not be taken seriously in

    "Empowerment and Poverty Reduction Sourcebook,"
    this volume outlines a conceptual framework that can be used
    to monitor and evaluate programs centered on empowerment
