Insecurity Insight examines threats facing people living and working in dangerous environments. Our innovative data collection and analysis methods generate insights relevant for aid workers, aid agencies and those concerned with the protection of health workers, educators, IDPs and refugees. Our aim is to empower those who deliver vital services and to give voices to those affected by insecurity
Insecurity Insight is a Humanitarian to Humanitarian (H2H) organisation which delivers data products and services to humanitarian and aid organisations, advocacy groups and researchers. By offering our innovation ideas, tools, data and methodologies, we can enable other organisations to assist and protect people affected by disaster and conflict. We are committed to the humanitarian principles.
Existing reporting systems throughout the aid industry ignore uncomfortable truths. Starting with the issue of sexual exploitation and abuse in the aid workplace, Insecurity Insight is launching a Report to us mechanism for the purpose of analysis and advocacy.
Rumours and real information on local conditions spread quickly on social media. We are exploring how aid agencies can make sense of this and respond adequately. We collaborate with the Standby Task Force to collect local information using their digital and social media networks on issues affecting humanitarian responses.
Insecurity Insight is a non-for-profit association in conformity with Article 60 of the Swiss Civil Code. We are a non-governmental and politically independent organisation. Our team is a network of committed members located across the world and connected through a virtual office. We work with collaborators and contirbutors from numerous aid and advocacy groups.
We are grateful for the project funding received from the Office of U.S Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) of the US Government, the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom, ECHO of the European Union and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland. We work with numerous partners in the humanitarian, aid, IT and research sectors.
Insecurity Insight works with a team of specialised IT developers and through partnerships with IT companies to support innovation in the gathering and use of evidence for the purpose of making people safer.
