Workshops on Security and Protection for Researchers

The Creating Safer Space network warmly invites you to two workshops on security and protection for researchers.

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. 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 are relevant for all researchers who conduct fieldwork in conflict settings or authoritarian countries, and are free of charge. The workshops are offered in English and Spanish. 

English workshops

7.00 – 10.30 am UTC on Wednesday 16 June: Risk analysis and protection plans

7.00 – 10.30 am UTC on Wednesday 30 June: Digital security 

Spanish workshops:

2.00 – 5.30 pm UTC, miercoles 9 de junio: Análisis de riesgos y planes de protección 

2.00 – 5.30 pm UTC, miercoles 23 de junio: Seguridad digital

The workshops are organised by the Creating Safer Space network and delivered by Sylvain Lefebvre from Protection International. The workshops are funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
