The UK’s approach to safeguarding in the humanitarian sector | Approach Paper

This approach paper sets out the purpose, scope and rationale of the UK government review, which will focus explicitly on the humanitarian aid sector and will examine the extent to which the UK government’s safeguarding efforts have been effective in preventing and responding to sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) of affected populations, perpetrated by aid workers operating in humanitarian aid contexts.

The review will consider how well the UK government has identified and addressed evidence gaps about best practice for protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) and how well it has developed a coherent response to the issue.

PSEA approaches are considered by this review to include the prevention, detection and response to SEA. A key focus of this review will be how well PSEA approaches work in practice. To evidence this, the review will draw on the voices and experiences of people affected by humanitarian crises as well as recipients of humanitarian assistance.

The review questions, methodology, and sampling approach are also presented.
