Using diplomatic deterrence to protect nongovernmental organizations engaged on hazardous duties


Diplomatic deterrence is the product of an NGO's relationship to larger international actors who can exert diplomatic pressure on their behalf, influencing local authorities and actors who either pose security threats themselves or who are well placed to promote the security interests of the NGOs, but are not adequately doing so. This is a very important element in the security strategy in any country of operations.
