Humanitarian principles and current practice
How do codes of conduct help?When you’re working closely with affected populations, codes of conduct allow you to look at things in a systematic way. For example, these codes help you to address the following questions:
- How do we work with people affected by a disaster?
- What factors are most important when working with these people?
- How can you make sure that they have a say in what you’re doing?
- How can they be engaged either as equals or as leaders in the process?
Your taskWhile you are watching Phil’s three minute video consider the question: ‘Should an agency compromise on other principles in order to meet the humanitarian imperative?’ Share your thoughts in the comments.
