We are delighted to announce that Steve Dennis will be sharing his insight and experiences at Borderless 2017 on 16th February in Harrogate.
Borderless is the Travel Risk Event for Humanitarian, NGO and International Development organisations and we are excited to be supporting this event.
Canadian Steve Dennis holds a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering and a masters degree in International Relations.After 10 years of overseas humanitarian aid work, he was attacked, shot and kidnapped. In the months after, he discovered significant errors of neglect which led him to challenge the conclusions of his employer, NRC that the incident was only a matter of residual risk. After several other NRC kidnappings and fatalities in the years following, as well as the ending of support to his medical and other costs related to his injuries, and the breakdown of dialogue, he sued NRC for gross negligence and recovery of losses. In November 2015 the Oslo District Court found NRC grossly negligent in their duty to staff safety.
