Improving the Safety of Civilians: A Protection Training Pack


A training pack has been developed by OXFAM to help humanitarian workers to improve the safety of civilians being subjected to violence, coercion, or deliberate deprivation. The pack includes modules on 'what is protection', planning a programme and mainstreaming programming for protection.

The activity sessions within the modules cover a range of topics, including international standards for civilian protection, objective setting, indicators and monitoring, humanitarian negotiation, co-ordination and alliance building, reducing the risk of sexual violence and advocacy for humanitarian protection. A selection of core exercises at the end of the book is designed to encourage interaction and create debate.

Entitled 'Improving the Safety of Civilians', the pack outlines all activities, with detailed trainers' notes, timings, resources needed, and handouts, feedback, and evaluation sheets. Colour cards and posters are included at the back of the book.

An accompanying CD contains the full text of the manual, including the cards and posters for users to print.

The materials are designed for use by experienced facilitators, who have some knowledge of protection issues, to train emergency-response teams. Activities can be adapted for participants with different levels of knowledge.

The print version with CD-ROM costs £19.95 (inc. VAT) or the entire content is available on line (PDF, 1.34MB) at http://publications.oxfam.org.uk/oxfam/display.asp?K=9780855986162
