Psychology of Conflict: South Asia, Stigma & the Scars of Partition

Renowned conflict trauma specialist and journalist Justine Hardy will host a discussion on the impact of stigma surrounding mental health, especially in the context of South Asia. What is the psychological aftermath of partition, and does it hinder the process of reconciliation in the region?

A British author and journalist, Justine has written books and reported on issues ranging from war to Indian cinema. Her work has been featured in various publications including BBC, Financial Times, The Times, NG Traveler, and Vanity Fair.
