We’ve gathered multiple experts in their respective fields to give a complete and well-rounded training - tailored to your wishes.

Today I want to devote a few words on the Oxfam scandal. Many,  many words have already been dedicated to it and I don’t need or want to repeat them here. What I do want to talk about is what allowed it to happen in first place. This is a lesson that is relevant for all organisations, big and small. It has to do with what we call ‘practical security’, a security policy based on individual experience.

If you read our previous blog, you know that the Dennis vs. Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) verdict showed that the duty of care is gaining significance. The NRC was found guilty for negligence of its responsibilities and was ordered to pay Dennis a substantial compensation and, perhaps worse, suffered a lot of bad publicity. As we pointed out in our analysis blog, this is also a precedent for other employees that have  doubts. Other court cases prove the same point. The concl...

‘Although I am the first to go to court for grievances, I am definitely not unique in feeling those grievances,’ were among the first words Steve Dennis spoke during a conference I attended in the beginning of September. Dennis was invited because he was the first to enter a legal battle with an NGO, his former employer, for failing to adhere to the duty of care.

A bit of backstory. In 2012 Dennis was sent by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) to the Dadaab refugee complex in...
