WAR WOUNDS | PRECARIOUS JOURNEYS

This research program asks how civilians and combatants access medical treatment in states where medical and healthcare infrastructure have been destroyed - sometimes deliberately - by military and paramilitary violence. It focuses on two contemporary conflicts that have increasingly become one – the war in Syria (2011-present) and the war in Iraq (2003-present) – and traces systems of casualty evacuation and medical care for the sick and injured within and across the borders of those states.
