People will abuse our products and use them for harm. It’s not an “if”. People utilise the products we help make to  hurt others, to control, abuse, and stalk people in their lives.  Eva PenzeyMoog joins us to talk about how we can design for safety, prevent harm before it happens, and helping survivors of interpersonal harm.

Eva recently published Design for Safety through A Book Apart and has been studying, writing, and giving talks about interpersonal harm and designing for safety for a number of years.

We look at some examples of harm, the harmful assumptions we make, (informed) consent, interviewing victims of harm, forming alliances to enable change. James and Per also in the outro discuss internationalisation and how cultural norms can impact your assumptions.
