Mette Marie Honoré

Independent Safeguarding and Investigation SpecialistOwner of SAFE STANDARDSBased in Copenhagen, DenmarkWhatsApp: +45 2248 2497Email: [email protected] I enjoy facilitation of training and provision of technical guidance to management levels as well as frontline aid workers and other professionals on adherence to standards. As a lawyer, I initially worked in refugee law and human rights and have for the last 15 years added operational and programmatic experience from numerous countries in Asia, Europe and Africa. The operational knowledge paired with extensive safeguarding and investigation experience have put me in a position to undertake independent investigations on demand as well as guide others to adherence to principles for high-standard safeguarding set-ups. Over the last few years, many of the tasks I have undertaken have been related to policy development as well as handling cases of sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment. I have conducted a high number of SEAH investigations, and I am familiar with the importance of addressing sensitive (often safety) challenges during such processes aiming at safeguarding all involved, e.g., survivors, witnesses, and subjects of concern. I am accustomed to working under difficult conditions, also in hardship locations and understand the crucial importance of reaching out to all staff and volunteers, also in the far field, in the application of standards and values, especially in relation to sexual misconduct.
