Drawing on Oxfam’s approach to implementing safer recruitment procedures, this case study provides guidance on how organisations can implement safer recruitment procedures internationally and address the risk of individuals who have abused or exploited children and/or adults being recruited by other organisations. It provides three key recommendations:
- Start discussions on what information your organisation can share in the countries you work in.
- Have a look at the Scheme as it can be used flexibly across different locations where your organisation works.
- Consider lobbying for change if a country does not legally permit sharing safeguarding information about aid workers with other organisations.
