The Women’s Refugee Commission upholds the Principles of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent (ICRC) Movement and NGOs in Disaster Response Programmes (commonly referred to as Code of Conduct). The Fundamental Principles of the ICRC, set forth in 1965, affirm the importance of the right of all persons to receive and give assistance and state that assistance must be provided impartially, while the Code of Conduct guides NGO standards of behavior. The Women’s Refugee Commission also upholds InterAction’s Standards for Private Voluntary Organizations and enforces the WRC Code of Conduct against sexual exploitation and abuse.
