Beyond Codes and Protocols
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Examining how the impact of initiatives and interventions can be meaningfully measured and valued

The Murad Code is a global code of conduct for gathering and using information in relation to systematic and conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV). The code is intended to outline a set of minimum standards of good practice and was developed through an intensive process involving practitioners, survivors, and stakeholders from across the globe. The purpose of the Code is to ensure CSRV practices are survivor-centred - allowing survivors’ human rights to be upheld, and ensuring that work with survivors is ethical, safe, and effective. However, bringing the Murad Code and other global protocols and standards into practice requires, widespread awareness, and accountability and cooperation from stakeholders at all levels, from the largest Governments to the smallest NGOs. This event will explore opportunities and barriers to implementation of Murad and other protocols to protect survivors and showcase practical solutions for how such tools can be actioned on the ground. Our expert panel will consider: 

1. Who holds responsibility for global standards and what does responsibility entail? 
2. How can effective implementation happen across sectors and contexts? 
3. How can adherence to voluntary standards be incentivised? 
4. How can partnership and collaboration help?
