Contemporary armed conflict poses unprecedented challenges to humanitarian organisations in delivering aid to vulnerable populations.
Whereas in the context of international armed conflicts aid workers are attributed formally recognised protection under international humanitarian law; today the changing nature of conflicts and the proliferation of non-state armed groups often mean that this assurance is no longer guaranteed.
Across the globe, aid workers are subject to violent attacks with 2 – 4 deaths per week worldwide.
While many NGOs take individual measures to mitigate the risks, coordinated action between agencies – seen by many as the more important requirement – has lagged behind with no common system at field level prior to 2011.
INSO was designed to fill this gap and today provides the humanitarian sector with a globally standardised mechanism for establishing and operating such platforms wherever they are needed.
