22 April 2010 10:30- 12:00 GMT presentation and discussion
12:00 – 13:00 GMT – sandwich lunch and networking

Network Paper 68 explores the concept and practice of community-based protection and identifies means for increasing and strengthening it. This paper draws on ActionAid’s publication ‘Safety with Dignity: A Field Manual for Integrating Community-based Protection across Humanitarian Programmes’, which aims to provide practical guidance for field staff working in humanitarian and development settings on how to integrate community-based protection across sectors and contexts.

In this event, the panel will discuss how effective protection for crisis affected people requires strong and genuine partnership between communities, states and international actors, in order to understand and address the complex factors involved in achieving safety and dignity for people in crisis situations. A short film will also be shown.

Speakers:
Amany Abouzeid- Human Security and Policy Coordinator, ActionAid
Brendan Ross- Middle East Director, ActionAid

Chair:
Wendy Fenton – Humanitarian Practice Network Coordinator (HPN)
