An event organised by the Women in the Field in South Asia research network.
Risk assessments are prevalent in all disciplines that require an element of fieldwork. The questions they ask and permissions they require inform many of the decisions later taken on the field. We would like to assess how fit they are for use in the South Asian context and especially for women working in the region.
How do we assess risk for fieldwork? How do our institutions assess our risk? How do we assess our personal risk? How can we actively plan fieldwork to be safe and inclusive?
