The ICT4COP research project is organised around 11 'Work Packages', each with a specific set of responsibilities.
Some work packages are administrative, some have a regional focus and some concentrate on crosscutting research themes.
This is an administrative work package, tasked with the administrative management of the project.
This project takes an explorative methodological approach in which ‘co-creation of knowledge’ is a fundamental tenet.
Understanding how vulnerable communities engage with technology to cope with insecurities is a central part of our project.
Our project is rooted in policing practice and international policing expertise.
In conflict-ridden and post-conflict societies, some groups in society are more vulnerable than others, and youth may be such a group.
Among vulnerable groups in post-conflict societies, women are often included specifically. But men, too, face may be at particular risk. Gender relations are therefore especially important in this project.
In Africa, our research concentrates on Somalia, Kenya and South Sudan.
In Asia, we conduct research in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
In Central America, we conduct research in Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador.
In South-East Europe, we conduct research in Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
This work package is an administrative one, having as its purpose to engage different audiences in the knowledge that is created by our research efforts.
