In this episode we spoke with Dr. Kate Ferguson, Co-Executive Director of Protection Approaches, and Dr. Jess Gifkins, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Manchester and the Queering Atrocity Prevention Research Fellow at Protection Approaches. During the episode, Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Gifkins explain how Protection Approaches aims to improve intersectional assessments of atrocity risks, including by incorporating the specific vulnerabilities faced by LGBTQI+ people and other groups within atrocity prevention research, policy and practice. They also highlight Protection Approaches’ seminal report, Queering Atrocity Prevention, and provide an overview of how the report has been received and implemented since its release in March 2022.
