Security is community: Lessons from the Panic Button experience

, Index number: ACT 10/2133/2015

Originally situated within the Security with Human Rights Campaign at AI, the Panic Button project was born out of a desire to creatively engage with technologists to positively impact on situations of enforced disappearances. In the three years since its inception, the project has allowed AI to take a firm step into the emerging field of technology and human rights, whilst drawing on the organization’s lengthy experience supporting the protection of HRDs. This evaluation report reflects on the main lessons learned from the Panic Button experience, documenting the methodology and approach adopted by AI and our partners and presenting feedback from users who took part in the global testing phase.
