Lessons learnt and future expectations of complex emergencies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Complex emergencies represent the international response to state disruption and its sustaining infrastructure. Understanding of complex emergencies has arisen from the many post cold war conflicts of the 1990s, though complex emergencies can be catalysed by natural and other disasters. Complex emergencies need to be recognised for the public health disasters they are and for the public health expertise required by civil and military authorities.
