Colombia project publishes curriculum on research seedbeds

The Creating Safer Space project ‘Community strategies for Unarmed Civilian Protection in South-West Colombia: local experiences and lessons learned’ has published the IAP Research Seedbed Curriculum. This toolbox is one of the results of the process of training local researchers in participatory action research (PAR). The local researchers then led the creation and training of research seedbeds in the city of Buenaventura and the communities of Caldono and Lerma in Cauca. This curriculum is a testimony to the significant contributions of local researchers and seedbeds to the research and practice of security, protection and care strategies in their communities. This publication is currently only available in Spanish, but an English language edition will follow soon.
