Prof. Rachel Julian, Creating Safer Space Co-Investigator, has published an article in the academic journal Civil Wars, ‘Civilians Creating Safe Space: The Role of Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping in Protection of Civilians’. The article draws on research in Myanmar and the Philippines, and challenges the assumption that only the military can do ‘Protection of Civilians’ (PoC). The article is available to view open access.

Mel Duncan, one of the co-founders of Nonviolent Peaceforce, has published an article in Waging Nonviolence, ‘There’s a better way to make communities safer — and it’s taking off around the world’. The article draws on Creating Safer Space research in Colombia, carried out by the University of Antioquia in collaboration with Harlequin and the Jugglers.
