Enhancing the integrity of humanitarian operations in complex humanitarian contexts
September 2015-April 2017

Groupe URD took part in a project which aimed to analyse the risk of corruption in sensitive humanitarian contexts. The project has been coordinated by Transparency International, via its national offices in Kenya, Senegal and Jordan, in partnership with Humanitarian Outcomes. The project focused on possible practical solutions, and aimed, more generally, to help humanitarian actors to understand and manage the risk of corruption.

This project has been based on country case studies and comparative analysis in fragile contexts, such as complex emergencies where there is reduced humanitarian space (e.g. Somalia and Afghanistan), countries affected by the mass influx of refugees (Lebanon), or large-scale health crises (Ebola region). Groupe URD was in charge of the case studies in Lebanon and Guinea.

The objective of the project was to exchange good practices, draw lessons from fragile contexts, establish dialogue about these sensitive issues, and make recommendations to enhance the integrity of humanitarian operations via multi-actor commitment at the national, regional and global levels.

Following the case studies, workshops were held in most of the countries concerned to discuss the results of the study with stakeholders and interested persons.
