Business operations in high-risk environments are faced with unique security and human rights challenges.

The DCAF-ICRC partnership promotes responsible business conduct and supports respect for the security, rights and dignity of local communities.

The Knowledge Hub is an interactive tool that brings together practical guidance for governments, civil society and companies on business, security and human rights.

Companies today are working in increasingly complex environments and face a wide variety of challenges that endanger their operations and staff, as well as the rights and dignity of the communities in which they operate. In order to ensure security, resilience, and sustainable development in these environments, multi-sector engagement, both nationally and regionally, is imperative. Whether you work in a company, a government, an NGO or a research institution in the field of responsible business conduct, the DCAF-ICRC partnership works to support you by:

  • Bringing together a universe of tools and guidance on business, security and human rights: Check out the Toolkit for companies on "Addressing Security and Human Rights Challenges in Complex Environments" available in English, Spanish, French and Chinese.
  • Publishing innovative and practical case studies on the management of security and human rights challenges: Check out our Case Studies.
  • Providing comprehensive information on in-country processes on business, security and human rights: Check out our Country Profiles.
