Voluntary principles on security and human rights: National-level implementation guidance note

The purpose of this document is to give guidance to those interested in initiating or supporting a national‐level process to implement the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.

The Fund for Peace and International Alert have joined in this effort as two of the participant NGOs in the international‐level dialogue of the Voluntary Principles , with funding from the Government of Norway and support from the Government of the Republic of Colombia, two of the governments formally involved in the process. This guidance note should not be viewed as overly prescriptive, as a national‐level process will invariably be different in each area.
