Rony Brauman


Chairman of Médecins Sans Frontières from 1982 to 1994, Rony Brauman has worked on numerous medical relief missions throughout the world. Fascinated by the political and ethical issues raised by relief work, he has published articles on foreign aid, refugees, the relationship between relief work and politics, as well as critical analyses concerning the logistics of relief work and the latter's relationship with the media. From 1992 to 1997, he was co-director of a post-graduate study group at the Paris Political Science Institute. Since 1998, he has been an associate professor at the University of Paris XII and co-producer to the radio programme Voix du Silence on France-Culture.
