Human Security Survey: Annual Summary Report Payinjiar
PAX and its partners conducted large-scale quantitative research about the nature of security threats facing civilians in Payinjiar, and the impact this has on their daily lives and their expectations for the future. Community security dialogues were organized afterwards to present the initial survey findings and subsequently have a dialogue with local community stakeholders in Payinjiar about security issues that warrant follow-up. Topics of discussion included community relations and the presence and ability of security actors to impact the local security situation.
This report summarises the Human Security Survey findings and presents the main conclusions from local community security dialogues in 2017 in Payinjiar.
The method used to collect this data and facilitate dialogue is called the Human Security Survey (HSS). The theory underlying the HSS is that by expanding the voice and agency of civilians on the protection issues that affect them every day, security policies and how they are implemented will be more reflective of and responsive to local needs, priorities, and capacities.
More on the outcomes of the HSS in South Sudan and Iraq can be found here.
