New Joint Project: 'Global Actors and Community-Level Security: Developing Best Practices'

DCAF and the ICRC have partnered with the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen’s University, the McGill/Université de Montréal Centre for International Peace and Security Studies, the Centre for Security Governance and Rio Tinto, to work on the project “Global Actors and Community-Level Security: Developing Best Practices”. The project’s core aim is to improve standards of corporate social responsibility in the extractive industry by incorporating tools for security prevention, management and resolution, to transform the way international business engage with local communities abroad. The project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and will be developed over the course of the next three years.
