The Collaborative Learning Approach to NGO Security Management project released several key project documents on acceptance. The first of these documents, the Acceptance White Paper, expored the key components of an acceptance approach to NGO security management and the key challenges of acceptance. The following three country reports present findings from field research in Kenya, South Sudan and Uganda. Finally, our culminating report, which also draws on this field research, provides insights into acceptance as a security management approach and recommendations for headquarters and field level NGO staff as well as donors.
In addition to these reports, the project released Acceptance Research, a user’s guide to the Collaborative Learning Approach to Acceptance Research:.
1. White Paper
2. Country Reports
Each report is country-specific and based on the findings from key informant interviews and focus group discussions we held with NGO staff in different positions and locations, community members, local security and government officials and others.
3. Final Report
