The “Famine and Forced Relocations in Ethiopia 1984-1986” case study is describing the difficulties and dilemmas met by MSF during the famine that decimated the Ethiopian population in 1984-1985. This famine triggered an unprecedented humanitarian mobilisation and huge media attention. But the Ethiopian regime at the time also used the international aid as a bait to attract the populations and forcibly resettle them in appalling conditions. In this context: what should have been done when it appeared that aid was being used against the population for whom it was intended?
Speaking Out Case Studies
This collection: "Case Studies: Médecins Sans Frontières Speaks Out," was created in response to the Médecins Sans Frontières International Council's desire to provide the movement with reference documents on "temoignage"/"advocacy". These documents are designed to be straightforward and accessible to all and to help volunteers understand and adopt the organisation's culture of speaking out on issues.
