Addressing Security and Human Rights Challenges in Complex Environments - Toolkit

11 Jul 2016 0:0

This Toolkit has been developed by the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as part of their joint project to develop guidance to support companies operating in complex environments manage their security in a way that is effective and respects human rights and, when relevant, international humanitarian law.

The Toolkit is structured around challenges related to the issues of working with host governments, public security forces and private security providers. These challenges have been identified through desk and field research, and a review process. Good practices and recommendations are provided on how to address these challenges building on what the VPs, the IGTs, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and security sector reform good practice specifically say on those issues.
