This booklet aims to point field staff in the right direction when they are considering or managing any form of humanitarian action that seeks to protect people from the violations, abuses and consequences of war. It assumes that all agencies are aware of their particular mandate or their main focus of humanitarian operation and that they are fully aware of the experience of the groups that they are seeking to help and the sectors in which they work. This booklet seeks to ensure taht each organisation is looking more widely at the main violations and abuses that are causing human suffering, identifying those responsible for the suffering and thinking creatively about a range of ways in which it might be prevented, alleviated and redressed, beyond a simple "aid-only" approach.
