Migration and Psychology

“Migration and Psychology: Research on Migration and Clinical Work with Refugees” presents research and work with migration issues and refugees. 

Welcome to the second breakfast seminar in the series «PSYOPS: The Psychology of Political Struggle».

Among the topics is how we can look at migration issues in a larger context, and treatment of refugees who have been subjected to torture. The major refugee crisis in recent times makes this a very topical and important theme.

PSYOPS is a collaboration between the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and Psychology Students without Borders Oslo (PUG Oslo), with focus on current topics in the borderland between psychology and politics.
