Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
DRC, NRC and ASAM are joining their effort in order to produce a research to better understand the protection environment of Syrian Refugees and the context of intervention of NGOs within this context. DRC is present in 4 provinces in South East Turkey, NRC works in 2 provinces including Ankara, as ASAM implement protection activities in several provinces of Turkey. The three NGOs are recognize for their expertise in protection and legal support.
