Blended Voices Symposium: Understanding Torture, War Trauma and Violence through an African Lens

Theme2

CSVR is hosting a symposium to help build an understanding of torture, war trauma and violence through an African lens from 30 September 2020 to 24 March 2021. Africa's relationship to torture, war trauma and violence spans across the continent's history of slavery, precolonial, colonial and post-colonial violence, as well as current civil war and tribal and political conflict. The symposium explores this history and how it has shaped Africa's narrative, as well as rehabilitation strategies at the individual, family, group, community and societal levels to bring about collective healing, in attempts to disrupt the cycle of violence in Africa and transgenerational trauma that has been carried through from the past.
