« Guerres humanitaires ? Mensonges et Intox » - Débat avec Rony Brauman

Dans son  « Guerres humanitaires ? Mensonges et Intox » (ed. Textuel), Rony Brauman analyse les guerres contemporaines menées au nom de l’humanitaire, les guerres dites « justes ». C’est donc l’occasion de revenir sur les mensonges ayant permis de justifier certaines interventions internationales, notamment en Somalie, au Kosovo et en Libye, toutes trois qualifiées d'humanitaires. Rony Brauman soumet également au lecteur une approche critique du droit international humanitaire et de ses usages.

'Disastrous' Libyan intervention was France's Iraq war, says Rony Brauman in an interview for #middleeasteye. In his new book “Guerres humanitaires ? Mensonges et intox”, he questions the notion of #humanitarianwars. https://t.co/GXjbSJXcZ4

Genocide from an historical, legal and political standpoint

The publication of the journalist Judi Rever’s book, In Praise of Blood, on the crimes committed by the Rwandan Patriotic Front’s armed rebellion has rekindled discussion over the existence of a “double genocide”, one committed against the Tutsis under the orders of Rwanda’s interim government which took power in April 1994 following the assassination of President Habyarimana, and the other against the Hutus by the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) which seized power in July 1994. There is little or no controversy about the reality of the genocide of the Tutsis in the world of Rwandan studies, but the claim that the Hutus were in turn victims of genocide sparks reactions as violent as they are confused. The cause of this confusion can be found in the different definitions of a term used in at least three fields: history, law and politics.

Humanitarian Wars ? - Interview with Rony Brauman

Rony Brauman has just published “Guerres humanitaires ? Mensonges et intox”. This book, a collection of interviews co-authored with Régis Meyran, explores a number of recent armed interventions that have all shared the goal of saving lives. Reviewing conflicts in Somalia, Libya, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq, Brauman discusses the reasons advanced for justifying these wars and the accompanying lies.

Consultations on asylum and immigration bill: MSF denounces ‘‘a fool’s game”

Abstaining from participation in a meeting taking place this coming Thursday, MSF feels that "government officials have listened politely at best and shown condescension and contempt at worst in response to positions expressed in meetings, op-ed pieces published in the press and questions asked in meetings by NGOs" and do not hide "a policy that is sliding into harsh repression".

Immunization: new perspectives on vaccines - Conference with Lise Barnéoud

Lise Barnéoud

Who profits from vaccination? Individuals? Society? Companies? Is vaccination efficient? Is it dangerous? Profitable? What are the factors influencing public opinion in this domain? Lise Barnéoud, science journalist and author of Immunisés ? Un nouveau regard sur les vaccins, has engaged in an investigation revealing multiple - and sometimes contradictory - realities observed in the French vaccination sector. She has carried out her investigation from three distinct viewpoints: the one of a mother who needs to decide whether to vaccinate her children or not; of a journalist leading an enquiry; and of a scientist analyzing how facts are built.   
 
Lise Barnéoud was a Crash guest speaker at a conference on vaccination held on December 5, 2017. A discussion with Epicentre, Crash and the MSF Medical Department allowed us to exchange views on vaccinal policy, which remains a cornerstone of MSF operations and a recurring subject of discussion and controversy.
