Event description

Description

Hosted by the King’s College London Conflict & Health Research Group in partnership with the Conflict & Health workstream of the R4HC-MENA project and the RECAP project, Health Research in Conflict and Complex Environments will bring together experts in the field of health research and research capacity strengthening in conflict and other complex environments to discuss the state of the field and challenges for the future.

Protracted conflicts have huge immediate and long-term implications for population health and the functioning of health systems. This makes strengthening the capacity of researchers to conduct good quality health research that translates theory into practice and policy vital. However, the realities of conflict make this a difficult proposition.

This event will sit at the interface of academia and practice and touch upon theoretical and practical dilemmas faced when conducting health research in crises. Hosted by a research group and project that is heavily involved in strengthening capacity for this type of research, the aim of this event is to bring academics and practitioners together to discuss the challenges of conducting health research in conflict and how we might overcome them.

Registration is free.

Join us on Tuesday 25th June at Bush House, King’s College London.
