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

The idea of creating a Humanitarian Sector Ombudsperson’s office (HSO) with the power to handle SEA issues throughout the sector is being discussed.  As its establishment and running might have various significant implication for the entire sector, a wide consultation within the sector is necessary. Such consultation should aim to assess whether the HSO is the best tool to respond to the need for enhanced protection against SEA within the sector, and if yes, how to make it function efficiently. ICVA commissioned this discussion paper aiming at feeding this reflection among ICVA members.
