The workshop aims to contribute to a new fresh view on trauma resulted from warfare and mass violence by going beyond the dominant psychiatric perspective. We approach trauma as a culturally specific manifestation. Geographically, our focus and expertise on Southeast Asia, including by scholars from the region itself, allows us to decentre approaches to trauma based on Euro-American historical experiences and Western psychiatry.
