The Overseas Security and Justice Assessment (OSJA) process ensures that risks to human rights are actively managed and are under constant review. Our training always includes a focus on the protection of civilians and international humanitarian law.

The listed programmes have all undergone full assessments of the risk they pose in relation to human rights, in line with the OSJA process.
