NGOs, Politics of Relief Operations and the Coming War
The consistent theme I heard from religious leaders in Sri Lanka was a strong critique of the work of NGOs engaged in the post tsunami relief operations. I am currently attending a conference of the Young President's Organization and World President's Organization in London. I look forward to spelling out this critique in these pages -- a critique that arises in the context of an impending war which the LTTE (militant Tamil Tigers) are about to unleash on the country. The most serious question is how do we work with NGOs in an appropriate way to face the next tsunami that will arise when this war breaksout.
