General problematic

Protection monitoring during internal displacement involves collecting, verifying, and analyzing information in order to identify human rights violations and protection risks encountered by IDPs and other affected populations. Protection monitoring generally takes place over an extended period of time and should be coordinated and undertaken by agencies with a specific mandate and expertise to do so, in cooperation with UN agencies and members of civil society, particularly those directly affected: internally displaced persons and others.

SWEDO’s work

To respond to the urgent challenges concerning protection, we in partnership with United Nations have implemented a number of robust projects to address the main challenges pertaining to IDPs and refugees, aiming at identifying the vulnerable groups, especially persons with specific needs and establishing and efficient referral and feedback environment with other operating service providers.
