Last year, GISF published Module 14 of GISF’s Security To Go Risk Management Toolkit, Contracting Private Security Providers, in collaboration with ICoCA.

ICoCA, in collaboration with GISF, conducted research to better understand NGOs practices, procedures and policies vis-à-vis private security. Findings from this research will be synthesised in a Policy Brief, which will be released and presented during the event. A number of key questions are raised in the report, to be considered by the panel, including:
