Welcome to the second breakfast seminar in the series PSYOPS: The Psychology of Political Struggle - organized jointly by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Department of Psychology, University of Oslo & Psychology Students Without Borders (PUG).

This presents research and work with migration issues and refugees. 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.

Breakfast and coffee will be served.
