Contextual Safeguarding Across Borders Research Webinar

Friday, September 29 at 4:30am - 6am EDT

Join this webinar to learn about the findings from the Contextual Safeguarding Across Borders (CSAB) project, a two-year study ran by the Contextual Safeguarding research programme at Durham University and funded by Porticus Foundation. This research sought to understand the applicability and feasibility of Contextual Safeguarding in international contexts.

Contextual Safeguarding is an approach that has been developed in the UK to improve how professionals understand, and respond to, adolescents’ experiences of significant harm beyond their families – such as harm from their peers or sexual or criminal exploitation by adults.

In the CSAB project we partnered with two INGOs: International Rescue Committee Germany, who work with refugee young people, and Railway Children Tanzania, who support ‘street-connected’ young people. Together we will share what we have learnt through applying Contextual Safeguarding in these settings. Presentations will be followed by Q&As. Please note that the presentations (but not the discussions) will be recorded.
