Enhancing accountability SEA: Is a Sector Ombudsperson the next step?

Subject / Protection / Cross-cutting issues /

Discussions around creating a Humanitarian Sector Ombudsperson’s office (HSO) are going on. The idea of creating an HSO with the power to handle SEA issues throughout the sector will have various implications for everyone in the industry, so it should be meticulously examined before moving forward.  A wide consultation within our field will help determine whether or not this new development is necessary and what kind of impact it might make on us all. ICVA commissioned this discussion paper aiming at feeding this reflection among ICVA members.
