This groundbreaking report provides a heavily sourced, field research-based assessment on the extensive web of corruption in Syria that ties together U.N. humanitarian assistance providers and the Assad-led Syrian government. This systemic corruption implicating the U.N.-overseen humanitarian aid delivery process benefits the regime and its security apparatus at the expense of millions of highly vulnerable Syrians.
In this episode of “Roamings and Reflections,” humanitarian assistance and international development expert Sasha Ghosh-Siminoff joins host Nicholas Heras to recount the massive effort to evacuate Afghans as the Taliban seized Kabul.
