Statement by VPs Participants on MoUs between Public Security Forces and Companies, October 2014

The Voluntary Principles participants have recently published a statement highlighting the importance of the content and process of drafting a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between companies and public security forces. The statement highlights the value of MoUs to, firstly, “delineate the respective duties and obligations with respect to the provision of security in and around the relevant operation”, and, to, secondly, provide “an opportunity to discuss … a range of human rights-related issues, and … generate opportunities for training for the public security forces.” Please click on the image to be redirected to the full statement.
