This conclusion explains the end of the massive American relief project in the eastern Mediterranean and describes how that effort was transformed into a recognizably modern nongovernmental development agency. It explores the problematic relationship between human rights and technical assistance, especially in authoritarian states. It also concludes the League of Nations’ humanitarian work with a discussion of humanitarian transfer and its impact on the thought of Raphael Lemkin.

Keywords:   Near East Relief, Near East Foundation, Point Four program, Assyrian massacre, Raphael Lemkin
