Enduring Mental Health Effects of Human Rights Abuses

Venue: Stanford Law School, Room 85

Hosts: Stanford's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law; Center on Innovation in Global Health; and Center for Policy Outcomes and Prevention.

Legal and medical experts from Stanford’s Human Rights in Trauma Mental Health Laboratory will discuss the legal applications of psychiatric research on the mental health effects of human rights abuses. Current lab projects focus on producing expert reports on psychological outcomes for use in international criminal cases, researching the negative mental health consequences of solitary confinement in prisons, and using mental health outcomes to inform refugee resettlement, including for Syrian refugees.
