Human Security, Violence, and Trauma: Psychological Responses and Political Impacts of Conflict

May 26-27, 2021
UC Berkeley

The Human Security, Violence, and Trauma (HSVT) conference, funded by the IGCC Academic Conference grant, brought together researchers from political science, psychology, neuroscience, and public health, and practitioners working in the field for a two-day seminar on the implications of conflict and forced migration.

Convened virtually May 26-27, 2021, the event provided an opportunity to create connections and spark conversations across fields in previously underexplored ways, offering theoretical, methodological, and practical insights into vital questions of conflict recurrence and peace stability, with the goal of advancing scholarship and informing policy on how living through war impacts human behavior.
