By joining the Association, civil society organisations help to promote and protect human rights and support the rule of law through improving effective regulation and accountability of the private security sector. Member civil society organisations play a key role in safeguarding the human rights focus of the Association’s core functions, and in ensuring that monitoring is carried out according to established human rights methodologies. Additionally, CSO members can contribute to identifying particular areas and regions where the provision of private security services may encounter higher risks, as well as in ensuring that the concerns and needs of impacted communities are taken into account.
