A theory of compassion: the new authority of humanitarian organisations

abstract in the late 1960's we could observe a new "humanitarian wave". Médecins sans Frontière, awarded with the Nobel prize in 1999, sets up a new authority: the right to interfere. We analyse how that interference became a right for human beings, the right to "be human".
