Globalisation has added tot worldwide awareness of human rights violations, political violence and humanitarian emergencies in conflict areas far from people’s own homes. In her research, Suzan Song attempts to understand the complex clinical questions affecting survivors of armed conflict. She does this by evaluating the impact of conflict-related trauma on children, how this affects children as they grow into adults and have children of their own, and what happens when survivors of torture and human rights violations migrate to a host country.
