WHY HAVE WE NOT DONE BETTER TO DATE
The mere fact that we are calling a crisis protracted means that it is a 'positive' crisis. That is, a crisis in which agents are actively agitating and confronting each other. Unlike a 'negative' crisis such as a natural disaster, origins of a positive crises can have deep rooted, often from some unresolved historical injustices - especially those linked to natural resources. Therefore, unless those issues are identified and possibly resolved, mere humanitarianism will only be supporting prolonged fighting.
