Speaking out

Speaking out is a series of studies from Médecins Sans Frontières that openly examine and analyse the organisation’s actions and decision-making process during humanitarian emergencies that have led it to speak out.

From denouncing the forced relocation in Ethiopia in 1985 to the inaction of the international community during the Rwandan genocide of 1994 and the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech that demanded an end to indiscriminate bombings of civilians in Chechnya and much more.
