Practitioner Training for Nonviolent Conflict Transformation Spring 2019: Introduction to Security
February 11, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - February 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm
Participants are able to
- analyse the ways in which they as individuals and their groups, movements or organisations respond to risk
- carry out an in-depth context analysis with a view to improving security practices
- create basic security plans and protocols for common or high-risk aspects of their work
- know and choose secure practices and tools according to their own situation and capacity.
Activists and peace workers face many dangers in their work. This training combines physical, psychosocial and digital elements of security into an integrated approach to improve participants‘
abillity to think critically and act to improve the security of themselves, their communities, and families.
This training takes an approach which aims to redefine security in the context of peace work, reclaiming the concept from statist and militarist associations. Participants will understand and
define ‘security’ for themselves in the context of their activism.
A special focus will be given to high risk activities like demonstrations, nonviolent actions, monitoring and documentation, but also to secure one‘s ways of communication.
Participants will learn to assess their own security situation and identify areas for improvement, as well as entry points to security strategies and plans for relevant aspects of their work.
