dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP3 file: "Pierre Gassmann has experienced firsthand the violence plaguing Iraq. As head of the delegation to Iraq of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), he was sitting in his Baghdad office in late October 2003 when a suicide bomber drove an ambulance to the entrance of Red Cross headquarters and detonated its arsenal. At least 12 people were killed, including two Red Cross guards, nine Iraqi civilians and the bomber himself." Gassmann argues that humanitarian community is no longer regarded as independent and neutral due to involvement of the military and government entities in aid work. He describes the evolution of international human rights law and provides a history of humanitarian aid and protocols from the Cold War to the Iraq War.en
