Peace workers face threats not only because of where they work but also because of what type of work they do. This training aims at proactively managing security on an organisational level while touching aspects of personal security. Therefore coordination or management level staff of NGOs and others who are responsible for security of fieldworkers or activists will benefit most. The training is structured alongside a security management framework that can also be used for advancing organisational security later on. We work with inputs, examples, exercises and small group work. The training also includes a crisis management simulation and smaller roleplays. The training will focus on creating policies, programmes and practices that make peace work and activism safer.
