Episode 490 Humane vs Political?

Kehkashan Basu recently attended the Non-Proliferation Conference. James Simeon discussed the new effort to merge a “nexus” of three issues: humanitarianism aid, development, and peace. Unfortunately there can be contradictions in the approaches. Peace issues are about political conflict, and conflicting political or military enemies do not like for organizations to provide humanitarian aid to their enemies. Do some peace activists want peace so much that they minimize the seriousness of the particular issue in dispute? Joan Kerr and Richard Denton discuss this.
