The first and foremost goal of humanitarian aid is to save lives. But what if humanitarian action unintentionally lengthens the duration or becomes part of a conflict?
During this edition of Humanitarian Hot Topics humanitarian experts discuss unintended consequences of humanitarian aid in South Sudan. This episode follows on the introduction by Jok Madut Jok and further debate with Bram Jansen and Akke Boere (part 1).

Akke Boere: Operational Manager Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Amsterdam.
Bram Jansen: assistant professor at Wageningen University and Research. Main topics: refugees and forced migration, protracted refugee situations, and humanitarian aid.
Peter Heintze, coordinator of KUNO, is the moderator of the discussions.
This podcast is based on the recordings of a public debate organized by KUNO and Humanity House.
