  • Transforming Insecurity Through the Co-Production of Knowledge in Nonviolent Grassroots Networks
  • About Dr Herring: Eric Herring is Deputy Director of the Global Insecurities Centre at the University of Bristol. He has published widely on critical security studies.  He is principal investigator for an international collaborative project on Grassroots Security. Using wide-ranging cases—such as neighbourhood watch in Somalia to prevent suicide bomb attacks, grassroots projects to record every casualty of armed conflict and the global movement against the street harassment of women—the project explores how nonviolent grassroots networks supported by knowledge brokers who bridge the gap between research and practice can transform global insecurities.
