Preventing and responding to conflict-related humanitarian crises: an Australian checklist for action

posted on 2019-01-01, 00:00 authored by Rebecca Barber
The Checklist provides a list of actions that can be taken by key international and regional bodies to prevent and respond to conflict-related humanitarian crises; and a list of actions that can be taken by the Australian Government to prevent and respond to conflict-related crises, either individually or in collaboration with others. Opportunities for Australian Government influencing are identified in four categories: UN institutions (the Security Council, the General Assembly and the Human Rights Council); regional forums (ASEAN-led forums and the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons & Related Transnational Crime); bilateral influencing (dialogue, sanctions, military cooperation and defence exports); and the provision of humanitarian and development assistance.

The Checklist is aimed at enabling more effective, collective advocacy on the part of Australian NGOs and other civil society actors, and at facilitating more targeted and strategic dialogue between civil society and the Australian Government in relation to conflict-related humanitarian crises.
