Contracting Private Security Providers – a double-edged sword

Humanitarian NGOs’ contracting of private security providers continues to raise crucial questions for the humanitarian sector. While these companies offer a wide range of services that are particularly useful in fragile and complex environments, they can also bring additional risks to NGOs. In this blog, Juliette Jourde explains why GISF and ICoCA are launching a survey to investigate the challenges NGOs face when contracting private security providers and identify what best practices could be promoted in the sector.


Remembering Andy Marshall

It is with great sadness that I must share the news that Andy Marshall passed in his sleep on the night of the 19th February. Andy worked for many years in the humanitarian sector and he brought his perspective into managing security risks, most recently back in the EISF family working for Cordaid.
