Who cares for survivors of torture?


G6 Lecture Theatre | UCL Institute of Archaeology (link Map)
31–34 Gordon Square | London | WC1 | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Ticketed

Even in the best of times public sentiment often fails to extend to individuals and families seeking a homeland free from torture and oppression. In the aftermath of government cutbacks, those without political voice or rights are often the first to be affected. Alarmingly, sometimes those who would otherwise care for the tortured may become complicit in oppression when outsiders are considered dangerous.

This event will begin with the screening of Doctors of the Dark Side (Cruciform LT1,5pm) about the collusion of doctors in physical abuses at Guantanamo Bay. The film will be followed by a panel discussion, led by UCL psychologist Amanda c de c Williams and a panel of experts, survivors, activists, and therapists.

The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception and viewing of paintings by survivors.

Sponsored by the UCL Science, Medicine & Society Network.
