Dr. Tony Waters will lead a presentation and discussion time on April 26 at 5 pm in the conference room at the Institute of Religion, Culture & Peace on Payap University's Mae Khao campus.
His sociological analysis is based on his experiences with refugee relief operations in Thailand in the early 1980's and later in Tanzania in the 1990's. He will reflect on what these experiences mean for how the world evaluates humanitarian relief operations today. The lecture and discussion is based on his 2001 book, "Bureaucratizing the Good Samaritan: The Limitations of Humanitarian Relief Operations."
