Public Health, Mental Health, & Mass Atrocity Prevention

  •  New York City

By the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights and the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation

The focus of this joint project is on the role of public and mental health in mass atrocity prevention (that is, large scale and deliberate attacks on civilians, including war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide). This multi-year initiative will begin to build a body of knowledge, culminating in an edited volume, on how public and mental health policies and practices (that is, actions meant to protect and promote the health of entire societies, and that employ multidisciplinary interventions to address the underlying causes of health and disease) can aid in lowering recidivism of past abuses and the prevention of mass atrocity.

The deadline for abstract submissions is Oct 16, 2017.  Submitters of accepted abstracts will be invited to an onsite workshop at Cardozo Law Institute in New York City in the Spring of 2018.
