In a world that is seeing increasing attacks against aid workers it is essential to understand the role that security risk management plays in enabling safe operations and why it should be on every humanitarian’s radar. Featuring speakers from Legal Action Worldwide, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and The Fred Hollows Foundation, the Global Interagency Security Forum (GISF) was thrilled to connect with future humanitarians and development professionals to discuss the critical work that security professionals play in keeping aid workers safe, to understand how the next generation of aid workers think about their safety, and highlight what opportunities exist in security risk management for those interested in working in the humanitarian sector.
