Throughout the year, VOICE produces and disseminates key documents reflecting on humanitarian aid issues at the EU level and from an NGO perspective. They are addressed to decision-makers within the European institutions, at the National level, to NGO networks and other stakeholders of the humanitarian community, as well as to the VOICE members. Some documents are produced by the VOICE Secretariat with the support of VOICE members while others are publications from members and other key stakeholders in the humanitarian sector. 

Please note that members-only documents will not be visible unless you are logged in.

    Tags: Security

    The Round Table focused on the very actual topic of security on the ground in humanitarian crisis. The debate – organised in collaboration with GRIP (Groupe de recherche et d’information sur la paix et la sécurité), and the financial support of DG ECHO, aimed at contributing to the debate on security not being solely a technical matter, but that there are other aspects to consider, due to different actors having different perceptions of what is security. The interventions to prepare the debate were given by two researchers contributing to the Feinstein International Center’s preliminary report “Humanitarian Agenda 2015: Principles, Power, and Perceptions” and related country studies. The NGO perspective was provided by Action Contre la Faim. The fourth speaker added the security realities of the journalists to the discussion in order to broaden the discussion outside the humanitarian community.
