ECAS 2023 – Questioning the trauma. Mental disorders
among African fighters (20th-21st centuries)

In June 2023, MADAF members gathered in Cologne (Germany) for a workshop at ECAS 9. This panel aims to question the notion of “war trauma” by confronting it with the contrasting experiences of African fighters (men and women) during the 20th and 21st centuries. It will discuss the plurality of experiences and psychological manifestations, modes of care and forms of recognition in contemporary African societies.

Panel organized by Camille Evrard and Paul Marquis. With :
