Humanitarian Security Survey

The Center on International Cooperation is conducting an online survey on the use of private security providers in a humanitarian context.

The survey is for headquarters, field and regional staff of UN agencies, the ICRC, and international and local NGOs. All relevant parties are encouraged to take part. In cooperation with OCHA and in consultation with an Advisory Group composed of UN agencies and International Red Cross/Red Crescent and NGO representatives, the research team has designed this survey in order to compile a dataset of the range of services that private security providers are contracted to undertake and different models of security provision and partnerships. The results of this survey in conjunction with desk-based and field-based analysis of humanitarian actors' use of private security providers will serve as the basis for a comprehensive report due in April 2008. The survey is anonymous, and no individual organization or agency will be cited by name in published findings.
