Made to Care - Commentary on the Dennis vs. NRC verdict
In November 2015 NRC were found to be Grossly Negligent in the case brought against them by Steve Dennis following his kidnapping in Dadaab, Kenya. The case is sure to have repurcussions for the aid indutsry, and in this blog post we offer ILS' commentary on the findings.
World Humanitarian Summit Commitments
The first ever World Humanitarian Summit is taking place in Turkey, 24-25th May 2016. ILS has been very actively involved in preparations for WHS, trying to get aid worker safety, security and wellbeing to feature more prominently on the agenda. In recognition of the need to create a strong voice around these issues we approached EISF to support our efforts. As a result we have galvanised support from humanitarian security risk management stakeholders globally to develop 2 commitments which we hope to present at a Leaders RoundTable.
