Call for Participation: Investigating Movement

[Closed] Call for Participation: Investigating Movement

Join us for a set of skill sharing sessions over two weeks that revolve around investigating movement in South Asia and South East Asia.

There are many factors that pull us toward a place or push us away. Whether it's hardships or the search of a better life. People can choose to move from and to places, but they can also be forced to. From seeking a better future to being forcibly removed from their homes, these movements leave a trail of breadcrumbs from which we can reconstruct events through investigations.

Tactical Tech's Exposing the Invisible team are looking for motivated, skilled and engaged people to join us for a series of collaborative sessions in January/February 2022 to explore ideas and share their skills on the topic of investigating movement.

 We'd like to look at innovative methods, exciting cases, accessible resources and advice that can be shared with fellow civil society investigators and researchers exploring issues that focus on investigating movement in the public interest.

Apply by 10 January 2022

Call extended to 17 January 2022


  • A series of skillsharing sessions over the course of 2 weeks between 22 January - 7 February 2022. The schedule will be finalized with participants.
  • 5-10 experienced people sharing skills and collaborating in small groups to exchange ideas and find new approaches to investigating this theme.
  • The language of the workshop is English.


  • We are looking for journalists, researchers, activists, artists, citizen investigators and other practitioners from South Asia / South East Asia with experience in investigating issues around movement/displacement.


The program of the collaborative sessions will include:

  • Networking session to introduce participants to one another.
  • Skills-shares, in which each participant will run a 60-minute practical session about a set of methods, skills or tools they have mastered, or about one or more projects they've developed recently.
  • Feedback sessions to share comments, questions and practical input to the working group's content.
