This is an exciting broadening of the previous military psychology conference remit. Questions include:
Stabilisation and peacekeeping activities aim to support populations living in fragile states that are either entering, enduring or emerging from conflict in order to, amongst other things, prevent or reduce violence as well as protect the population and prepare for sustainable social and economic development.
These activities can involve a range of organisations including Government departments such as Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Department for International Development (DFID) and disaster relief charities such as Oxfam and the Red Cross.
Psychological research and practice from across a range of disciplines and professions can help us understand how to address the psychological factors and impact on both military and civilian personnel who deliver these activities as well as the impact of instability on the populations living in Fragile States.
This conference therefore aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from a range of disciplines to share emerging research and practitioner good practices.
We are pleased to announce our Keynote Speakers;
The role of Psychology in planning and evaluating the response of the emergency services to Critical Incidents - Exercise Unified Response. How lessons can be applied to peacekeeping and stabilisation activities.
