In the aftermath of the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, many analysts observed that the humanitarian response was inadequate and reflected a failure of the aid system. Speakers at this event will examine the lessons learned for current and future relief operations such as the recent response in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan.
