Roundtable No. 138 - Voluntary Principles In-Country Implementation: Challenges, Lessons and Opportunities
March 12, 2018 | Washington, D.C.
The VPs Strategy Document 2016-2019 places particular emphasis on the development of in-country working groups. Indeed, these working groups can play a key role in supporting implementation on the ground of the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights. In order to maximize the positive role that these groups can play there is a need to learn from experience to date. Within the framework of DCAF’s Security and Human Rights Implementation Mechanism, DCAF and Fund for Peace are conducting a project to analyse, document and share the challenges, lessons and good practices from current VPs in-country implementation efforts.
