This year’s Summer School will explore the relationships between political violence, trauma, empowerment and health in the light of the current refugee crisis. As future health professionals it is important to develop a basic understanding of trauma caused by “men made disasters” and the social determinants of health and healing. During the week we will also address the root causes of refugee movements and explore the social and political situation in the host countries. We will learn from and discuss with refugees about the challenges and needs of refugee communities and assess what they do or need to improve their health.
Participants will gain a thorough understanding of issues related to trauma and refugee health and its determinants through interactive lectures, workshops, excursions as well as skills training.
