Pursuant to my answer to Question 276193, the audit’s findings highlighted the importance of context, and areas where the process could be improved. The audit showed that the majority of programme teams have a good understanding of the human rights risks facing their programmes, and a realistic view of the extent to which risks can be mitigated.

Responding to the audit’s recommendations, the JFU is updating CSSF programmatic guidance, and the Stabilisation Unit is updating its core security and justice training for HMG staff to align with the revised guidance.

As stated in my answer to Question 249954, there are no plans to publish the OSJA audit.
