This session will address Inclusivity and Person Centered Approaches in Security Risk Management at a global and field level. While most people agree that this is the right approach to take to SRM, many struggle with what this means in practice.

Panelists will discuss the real life challenges they have faced, as well as the opportunities it has brought when taking a more inclusive approach. Good practices will be shared by both NGOs and the UN to demonstrate the necessity of inclusivity within SRM. Practical tools will be introduced to facilitate the implementation of a person-centred approach.


Chair: Eric Le Guen, UNHCR

Panel Speakers:

  • Jean-Phillipe Kiehl, International Committee of the Red Cross
  • Susan Muis, Lutheran World Federation
  • Mark Wallis, USAID
