Doing research in conflict areas: being sensitive to conflict and managing risks

Researchers working in conflict-affected areas need to be aware that the political and security situation in their study area may change very quickly. Should the situation deteriorate, they and their local partners may suddenly find themselves at risk, and their project’s continuation might be in jeopardy. Which security guidelines should researchers follow in such situations? How can their security be ensured if they are working in remote areas? What can be done to enable project continuation under worsened security conditions?
