This chapter examines stabilization programmes and social costs associated with humanitarian emergencies. It analyses the direct impacts of a stabilization programme and its indirect effects as they related to political turmoil. It considers the impacts of structure adjustment and evaluates social costs caused by the refusal to adjust. It concludes that the most frequent results of stabilization programmes consist of social and human costs with a certain degree of confrontation which may entail repression, but almost never a limited humanitarian emergency.

Keywords:   humanitarian emergencies, stabilization programmes, social costs, human costs, political turmoil
