THE CENTRALITY OF PROTECTION: WHAT IT MEANS IN PRACTICE

In 2013 the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) made a formal commitment to placing protection at the centre of humanitarian action. But what does that mean for humanitarian practitioners who are not protection specialists? This short video highlights the implications that all humanitarian interventions have for people’s protection from violence, coercion and abuse. It looks at some of the practical things humanitarians can do to reduce the threats people face, minimise their exposure to them and increase their capacity to cope. And it emphasises the individual and collective responsibility of all humanitarian organisations to design and implement a humanitarian response that helps keep vulnerable people from harm.
