This event launches the Network Paper 72, Local to Global Protection in Myanmar, Sudan, South Sudan and Zimbabwe. 

The Local to Global Protection Project (L2GP) is an initiative to document and promote local perspectives on protection in major humanitarian crises. Based on research in Myanmar, Sudan, South Sudan and Zimbabwe, L2GP explores how people living in areas affected by natural disaster and armed conflict understand ‘protection’ – what they value, and how they go about protecting themselves, their families and their communities. The research also examines how people view the roles of others, including the state, non-state actors, community-based organisations and national and international aid agencies.

Speakers:

Justin Corbett – author of the South Kordofan/Nuba, Sudan Study
Simon Harragin – author of the Jonglei, South Sudan Study
Ashley South – author of the two Myanmar (Burma) studies (via video link)
Nils Carstensen (ACT Alliance) – L2GP manager and co-author of Network Paper 72
