Crisis States Research Centre and International Humanitarian Law Project public lecture

Cornered in the Centre: aid and development in a rough neighbourhood

In his lecture Toby Lanzer looks at the challenges of kick starting and managing a humanitarian and development campaign for one of the world’s forgotten crises, that of the Central African Republic.

Toby Lanzer is the United Nations Resident Coordinator in the Central African Republic (CAR), a land-locked, conflict-ridden and desperately poor country the size of France, that has gone through 30 years of economic and social decline. He is currently the youngest person heading the UN agencies' humanitarian and development work in any country. Before coming to CAR in 2006, Mr Lanzer was in charge of the UN's global emergency appeals at headquarters, and earlier managed the UN's humanitarian response to the crisis in Chechnya.

James Putzel is director of the Crisis States Programme at LSE.
