Foe, facilitator, friend or forsaken?
Bryony Onciul

Community engagement, Indigenous heritage and the complex figure of the curator: foe, facilitator, friend or forsaken? Bryony Onciul Current critical issues, such as decolonisation, truth and reconciliation, span the interconnected networks of peoples, places, practices and artefacts which draw museums and their curators into complex and ever-changing spheres of engagement in today’s globalised world. While curation is a recognised and respected profession, the proliferation of community engagement since the 1980s has brought increased awareness of the importance

holistic ECD that covers the five domains. Guidance should include clear definitions for young children and caregivers, describe key actions for implementation for each of the five domains, include indicators for monitoring and evaluation and use accessible language for non-experts. This could be a catalogue outlining where to find each of these elements in existing materials or a repackaging of the information in one place. Finally, additional consultations and research on national and organisation-specific guidance, community engagement in standards and guidance, and

Editor’s Introduction
Michaël Neuman, Fernando Espada, and Róisín Read

Most mainstream discourses on humanitarian security would not consider the community engagement of a team of anthropologists in three West African countries during the Ebola epidemic of 2014–16 as directly related to security – and their article in this special issue on ‘Security and Protection’ hardly touches on security as its own topic. Instead, it provides a detailed account of the need for a thorough understanding of social relationships when defining, and thus securing, humanitarian

five-month suspension caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We established a social science team which worked in collaboration with the trial to explore local experiences of the trial. The aim was to produce academic research that could help inform the intervention, while also providing critique and maintaining academic independence. This required a delicate balance: the social science study remained distinct from the community engagement activities of the trial

Overall, Communications Officers learn much of their trade on the job. According to Leclair of WUSC, ‘conversations to better use visual media’ and ‘embed them in other products’ never stop. From their immediate predecessors, they inherited specific traditions of ‘community engagement’ with visual media. The CRC, for instance, offered Falconer the opportunity of
