    DescriptionThis publication deals with the often-lamented coordination deficit among international relief organizations - mainly the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, and the Red Cross/Crescent Movement - in responding to humanitarian crises. The book begins by reviewing the relevant literature and identifying the most important trends and actors in the international humanitarian arena. Next, it discusses the advantages and disadvantages of existing coordination models in practice, including those promoted by the UN. In addition, the book examines the suitability of organization theory - including network theory - for the diagnosis of coordination deficits and the deduction of a recommended course of action. Building upon organization theory, it then proceeds to develop a theoretical framework. Despite the complexity of the context of a humanitarian crisis, this framework allows for a surprisingly straightforward deduction of feasible strategies to improve coordination. Finally, the framework is applied and tested, using several cases of coordination in the ongoing humanitarian crisis of Sudan's Darfur region.
