Throughout the year, VOICE produces and disseminates key documents reflecting on humanitarian aid issues at EU level and from a NGO perspective. They are addressed to decision makers within the European institutions, NGO networks and other stakeholders of the humanitarian community, as well as to the VOICE members. Most of these documents are  produced by the VOICE Secretariat with the support of VOICE members.

Please note that members-only documents will not be visible unless you are logged in.

    Event reports

    Tags: Security

    The Round Table focused on the very actual topic of security on the ground in humanitarian crisis. The debate – organised in collaboration with GRIP (Groupe de recherche et d’information sur la paix et la sécurité), and the financial support of DG ECHO, aimed at contributing to the debate on security not being solely a technical matter, but that there are other aspects to consider, due to different actors having different perceptions of what is security. The interventions to prepare the debate were given by two researchers contributing to the Feinstein International Center’s preliminary report “Humanitarian Agenda 2015: Principles, Power, and Perceptions” and related country studies. The NGO perspective was provided by Action Contre la Faim. The fourth speaker added the security realities of the journalists to the discussion in order to broaden the discussion outside the humanitarian community.

    This Round Table aimed at engaging the VOICE Board (SCHA), senior management level of VOICE member organizations and other relevant humanitarian actors in a dialogue on relevant EC policy issues related to EU humanitarian aid, with a special emphasis on the Spanish NGO environment.
    VOICE has organised similar events with the French NGO community (Paris, October 2005) and the UK NGO community (London, February 2006). A closed session between the VOICE Board and the Spanish VOICE member organisations was held before the open session.
    This Roundtable has been organised in cooperation with Coordinadora, the Spanish platform of aid NGOs, with the financial support of EC DG Humanitarian Aid. Some 35 representatives of Spanish NGOs participated in this event.
