Professor Jenny Pearce gives keynote address in Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Professor Jenny Pearce gave a keynote address in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, on 9 June at a Public Event organised by Oxfam Honduras, to mark the end of a pilot phase of applying participatory methodologies in contexts of chronic violence and insecurity. These methodologies were initially developed by Professor Pearce in collaboration with Alexandra Abello (Bradford Phd Candidate), and known as 'Security from Below'. The event was attended by community researchers and residents from some of Tegucigalpa's most troubled neighbourhoods, as well as by public officials, police, city politicians and congressmen, human rights activists, international organisations and the media. The community researchers themselves presented the findings from their research.
