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, tribal and political conflict. The symposium explores this history and how it has shaped Africa’s narrative, as well as rehabilitation
strategies at 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.
