Siobhan Warrington has worked on participatory research and communications in international development for 17 years. Siobhan’s career began in Northern Pakistan carrying out large-scale participatory rural appraisals and community dialogues on gender and farming systems for the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme and IUCN.
Between 1999 and January 2013 Siobhan worked at Panos London (www.panos.org.uk) designing and implementing single and multi-country participatory communications projects in thRee regions of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, on several themes including living with HIV and AIDS; internal displacement; and environmental change. Her specialism is oral testimony, but she combines this with other approaches such as photography and video, as well as working with the mainstream media.
With the closure of Panos London Siobhan is in the process of establishing a non-profit company to take forward Panos London’s oral testimony work. She is a committee member of the UK Oral History Society and editor of the International Work section of the Oral History Journal.
