Humanity in Crisis: Ethical and Religious Response to Refugees

This book seeks to understand how humanity is in crisis, and what we can do about it. Hollenbach draws on the values that have shaped major humanitarian initiatives over the past century and a half, such as the commitments of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Oxfam, Doctors without Borders, as well as the values of diverse religious traditions, including Catholicism, to examine the scope of our responsibilities and practical solutions to global crises like the Shoah, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Rwandan genocide, the massacre in Bosnia, and the tsunami in Southeast Asia. He also explores the economic and political causes of these tragedies, and uncovers key moral issues for both policy makers and for practitioners working in humanitarian agencies and faith communities.
