How do the humanitarian principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence support humanitarian effectiveness ? Humanitarian principles aren't just an ethical compass for aid delivery in complex and dangerous environments, argues ICRC's Jérémie Labbé, they provide a pragmatic operational framework that contributes to humanitarian effectiveness too. The author reviews some of the systemic challenges to the principles, outlining how they and the boundaries of humanitarian action are interpreted differently, and how this impacts on the very understanding of humanitarian effectiveness. He then focuses on ICRC's understanding of these principles and demonstrate how, for this organisation, humanitarian principles are indispensable, but not necessarily sufficient to deliver humanitarian effectiveness.
