Addressing Security and Human Rights Challenges in Complex Environments


This is the third edition of the Toolkit 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. This edition contains a new fourth chapter - Working with communities  - developed in collaboration with Collaborative Learning Projects (CDA), as well as chapters on working with host governments, public security forces, and private security providers. 

It may be freely used and shared for educational and other non-commercial purposes, provided that the DCAF-ICRC Toolkit is acknowledged as the source. As the Toolkit is a ‘Living Document’, accessing it from the Knowledge Hub can ensure that the users have always access to the latest version.
