What determines which humanitarian disasters that will receive help from the outside world? Who is responsible for spreading the information to the general public? Situations that no one knows about and that are scarcely reported will receive less aid. Knowledge and awareness affect both the level of involvement and the will to donate, and through that the countries aid policy.
In order to raise these questions Doctors Without Borders (Sweden) have written the report “Crises that the swedes forgot” that will be presented by Robert Höglund at Café Bojan.
