We had our second British Academy #DIVAWProject workshop entitled ‘Digital Infrastructure & (Un)Safe Cities’ at Somerset House, King’s College London on 21st February 2018.
You can watch the video with interviews with some of our workshop participants – Societal Partners, academics, experts and practitioners – by clicking below.
A big thank you to all of our interviewees. We have now completed the initial fieldwork on the Safetipin software in Delhi, India and organised our second workshop as a multidisciplinary forum for those scholars, professionals and activists working on urban studies, safe cities, digital infrastructures, violence against women (VAW) and gender-based violence (GBV) to generate recommendations on how to address VAW by improving women’s knowledge of, and safe access to, urban infrastructure in the Indian city in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals 5, 6 and 11.
This workshop also allowed the project team and societal partners Safetipin and Sakhi Women’s Resource Centre to get feedback on the initial results from the fieldwork in India from our project Advisory Board and experts.
