Security and Human Rights knowledge Hub

In complex environments, companies encounter a range of security and human rights challenges that demand context-specific solutions.

The DCAF-ICRC partnership, established in 2012, is dedicated to promoting responsible business conduct in complex and conflict-affected environments.

The Knowledge Hub is an interactive platform designed to compile practical guidance and tools for governments, civil society, and companies on business, security, and human rights.

The corporate sector can contribute to positive social and economic development when efforts involve government actors, civil society, and local communities in planning and decision making. DCAF’s Security and Human Rights Implementation Mechanism (SHRIM) is a multi-donor trust fund committed to supporting on-the-ground implementation of security and human rights good practice in a coherent, sustainable and cost-effective way.

Through its projects, the SHRIM supports multi-stakeholder engagement across business, governments and civil society that contributes to security, development and respect for human rights in fragile contexts. To ensure the sustainability of its projects and multi-sector partnerships, the SHRIM prioritizes local ownership, knowledge sharing and capacity building amongst the actors participating in SHRIM projects.
