With its expert practical advice on security in situations of armed conflict, this updated set of guidelines will prove invaluable to humanitarian personnel working at the operational level.

Following on from the success of the first edition, published in 1999, it addresses new and developing threats such as chemical, biological and nuclear hazards and includes new chapters on, among others, first aid, staying healthy on mission and how international humanitarian law protects humanitarian workers.

Through a comprehensive evaluation of the potential threats, the author is able to lay to rest some of the mystique surrounding the subject of field security and helping this important work to be conducted more safely and securely.
