Just two things. Firstly, who is going to be at the ISC Project
Workshop in D.C next week? I am going to be there and will be talking
a bit about what we are doing at Security First, so it would be great
to grab a coffee / beer etc!
Secondly, we've been doing some work with humanitarian aid agencies in
relation to security and many are just beginning to start thinking
about issues of ICT. Some are starting to see many of the problems
that the LiberationTech/Human Rights field has been dealing with for a
while. They asked me to circulate this:
The European Inter Agency Security Forum (EISF) is pleased to announce
a new publication presenting discussion papers which will look at how
communications technology is creating new security risk management
challenges and opportunities for agencies working in humanitarian
response. The publication will present information on current
technologies and their use in security risk management; explore the
impact on security of both humanitarian actors and affected
communities; analyse the ways in which technologies are influencing
how humanitarians operate and their security; and generate debate on
how communications technology can contribute to risk management.
EISF is therefore seeking abstracts for short papers to be included in
the final publication that explores this field. Case studies and
proposals based on current field research or experience are
encouraged. All accepted papers will be published collectively in a
single report to be publicly launched by EISF in September 2014.
Please note the deadline for abstract submission is May 22nd.
