Histories of imprisonment in Myanmar: What’s changing? Please join us for a reception and official launch of the research programme “Legacies of Detention in Myanmar” Tuesday September 20th at DIGNITY.
Seminar: Can we prevent torture in war? Preventing torture in war is the ultimate challenge for the anti-torture movement! Research suggests that torture is inevitable during wars, that torture complicates war-fare and is generally undesirable, and that we possess incomplete knowledge about how best to prevent torture during wars. What knowledge do we need to prevent torture? Can torture be prevented during wars?
A Portrait of the Syrian Torturer This seminar explores the figure of the torturer in Syria. The discussion will be based on a series of ethnographic interviews conducted with defected or deserted Syrian soldiers, intelligence operatives, and police officers who carried out torture against those suspected of involvement in the uprising that began in 2011.
The Transgenerational Transmission of Refugee Trauma This PhD-thesis explores how a parental trauma history may effect children without a history of trauma exposure. Public defence by Nina Thorup Dalgaard February 29 at the University of Copenhagen.
