The success of a complex humanitarian mission depends upon cohesive linkages of diplomatic action, security operations and relief-to-development activities to achieve a desired outcome.

The Responsibility to Protect strategy brings greater significance to the issue of ‘best practices.’

Our experience includes initiatives to address the following:

  • A primary responsibility of states to protect their own populations from the crimes of: genocide, war–crimes, ethnic–cleansing, and crimes against humanity;
  • The international community’s responsibility to assist states in meeting those internationally accepted obligations;
  •  And, the international community’s responsibility to take timely and decisive action in cases where a state has manifestly failed to protect its own population from what would appear state sanctioned crimes.

Our experience includes participating in initiatives to address the following issues:

  • Planning: The goal is to assist with analysis and development of a framework that better enables government, military, humanitarian and international organizations to respond to crisis situations.

  • Legal Challenges: Regional or national conflicts will likely define the nature and scope of complex humanitarian emergencies. These situations raise trans–border and other legal issues that need be addressed by our team.
  • Land Mines: A high percentage of peacekeepers and on local populations is due to landmine detonations. Post-conflict reconstruction is also impeded, particularly in agricultural areas. And beyond.
  • Reintegration child soldiers. adequacy of exit and transition strategies for post-conflict reconstruction. Coordinate with financial entities, including the World Bank Group, whose involvement is essential to forging peace.
