“Trauma in the genes- an incurable diagnosis? On the “heritage” Russian Germans”

International Interdisciplinary Lecture Series on “War Peace Reconciliation: The aftermath of wars and violence and the work for peace and reconciliation”

On July 11th, 2024, from 19:00 to 21:00 German Time 

Trauma in the genes – an incurable diagnosis? On the “heritage” of Russian Germans

Christina Pauls MA, Chair of Political Science, Peace and Conflict Research at the University of Augsburg

When wars are over, the wars are not over. Their consequences are manifold, the material and economic ones perhaps the easiest ones to deal with. Physical, psychological, social and spiritual wounds and devastations especially among the military and civil populations continue in manifest and latent ways, also across the generations. They have serious impacts on the whole of societies, political systems, health care and social welfare. War consequences challenge and undermine processes of peace and reconciliation despite the needs and willingness for new beginnings after the war.

In a new, open, international and interdisciplinary series of lectures, experts from different countries and post-war societies as well as different scholarly disciplines and political roles are invited to offer their experiences and insights as well as practice and strategies for coping with, and healing of material, somatic, psychological, social and spiritual wounds of war and violence.

This series is a cooperation of the Girubuntu Peace Academy, an initiative of the Chair of Caritas Studies (www.caritas-science.eu) at Freiburg University together with Rapred Girubuntu eV, together with Ackermann-Gemeinde and the Baden-Württemberg – Burundi cooperation's cluster on Peace Building Initiatives and Peace Research.

The Lecture Series will be held exclusively in English
