This event is part of our Understanding Violence seminar series. We've convened this interdisciplinary seminar series to provide inspiration to our 5-year FCDO-funded project (XCEPT C3) on violent and peaceful behaviours in conflict contexts, with a focus on trauma. Our research project asks, “Why are some people more susceptible to violent behaviour than others?”
Co-Convenor: Pauline Zerla, PhD student, Department of War Studies
