Workshop on Protection and Security for Researchers (in English and Spanish)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventWorkshop, Seminar, or Course


With two workshops (in English and Spanish) delivered by the organisation Protection International, the project reacted to the observation that over the past few years, a growing number of incidents and events have highlighted both the need for researchers to reflect on their own security and protection, and for organisations to have responsible security practices and policies in place. Considering that conducting field research has become increasingly risky in some contexts, particularly in settings characterised by violent armed conflicts, or in countries where repressive regimes impose limits on what researchers can do, the workshops benefitted both academic and non-academic project partners and members of the wider communities of practice in the research regions in terms of better awareness of, and strategies to take, security risks when engaging with the topic of unarmed civilian protection in the midst of violent conflict.
