The negative impact of armed conflict on the mental health of combatants and civilians is well documented today. Little research has been done, however, on the impact of this mental suffering on reconciliation and the ability of actors to find a way out of the conflict. In collaboration with clinical psychologists, conflict mediators and local civil society actors, our project will highlight the role played by mental health in conflict resolution.
