An analysis of the traditional approach of anthropology on the risks of fieldwork and the need to adopt more accurate procedures in high risk zones. This paper explores two approaches that have served in anthropology to develop fieldwork in complex scenarios. Likewise, it explains the risk assessment procedures, the elaboration of mitigation measures and their usefulness for anthropological fieldwork.
