Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights National-Level Implementation Guidance Note
Languages available: English
The purpose of this document is to give guidance to those interested in initiating or supporting a national-level process to implement the VPs. The document lays out basic elements for consideration based on existing national-level processes. The Fund for Peace (FFP) and International Alert (IA) have joined in this effort as two of the participant NGOs in the international level dialogue of the VPs, with funding from the Government of Norway and support from the Government of the Republic of Colombia, two of the governments formally involved in the process. This guidance note has been informed by existing in-country processes — largely Colombia and Indonesia, as well as experience and insight gathered from participants at a workshop in Bogota in June 2010.
