The humanitarian variant of triage acts in the name of saving lives rather than other interests, e.g., furthering social cohesion, economic efficiency or waging war. Using the example of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) this talk explores the tensions of trying to extend this medical logic to a global scale.

While at the IAS, Redfield also participated in a Bat of Minerva interview.

Organized by the IAS Critical Science Studies Collaborative.
