    Abstract On 25-26 January 2001, the United Nations University (UNU) and the Delegation of the European Commission in Japan organized an international conference entitled Partners in Humanitarian Crises: Conflict Prevention, Management and Resolution - Towards a Comprehensive Approach. The two main goals of the conference were to develop practical recommendations to improve international responses to humanitarian crises and raise public awareness. Conference participants discussed the challenges of effective conflict prevention, the dilemmas of international responses to intra-state conflicts, and the illusions and realities of conflict resolution. A wide range of issues related to the roles of humanitarian aid donors, non-governmental organizations, and the news media was also considered, with a focus on how rhetoric can be turned into constructive action. The conference began at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, 25 January, in the U Thant International Conference Hall at the UNU Centre in Tokyo. Following opening remarks by Kiyohiro Araki, (State Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Japan), UNU Rector Hans van Ginkel, and Ambassador Ove Juul Joergensen (Head of the Delegation of the European Commission in Japan), Poul Nielson, EU Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, delivered the keynote address. Other scheduled speakers included Glenys Kinnock, Member of the European Parliament; Yasushi Akashi, Chairman of the Japan Centre for Preventive Diplomacy; Sadako Ogata, former UN High Commissioner for Refugees; Mari Fitzduff, Director of the Initiative on Conflict Resolution and Ethnicity (INCORE); David Malone, President of the International Peace Academy; Haruhito Sumikawa, Deputy Chief Editorial Writer, Asahi Shimbun; and Fergal Keane, Foreign Affairs Correspondent, BBC. The Partners in Humanitarian Crises conference was supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan and Asahi Shimbun. This was the first in a series of annual international conferences organized by the UNU and the Delegation of the European Commission in Japan, focusing on joint concerns of the UN, the EU, and Japan in areas of development cooperation, humanitarian aid and crisis management.
