Narrative report from 6th International Conference for Health and Human Rights – held in Cavtat, Croatia 21-24 June 2001.
OMEGA intend to provide support, care and treatment for persons who have been victims of organised violence and systematic health and human rights violations, as well as for their relatives and children, in the social, legal, cultural, spiritual, medical, psychological and psychotherapeutic spheres.
Focus on the ground-breaking report by Graça Machel which drew global attention to the devastating impact of armed conflict on children. Millions of children are caught up in conflicts in which they are not merely bystanders, but targets. Some fall victim to a general onslaught against civilians; others die as part of a calculated genocide. Still other children suffer the effects of sexual violence or the multiple deprivations of armed conflict that expose them to hunger or disease. Just as shocking, thousands of young people are cynically exploited as combatants. (78 pages, .pdf, for historical reference)
J.Eriksson et al. Joint Evaluation of Emergency Assistance to Rwanda, 1996

Assistance in “complex humanitarian emergencies” has remained largely unchanged or unchallenged since the end of World War II. One dilemma for international policy makers is that they do not have a scientific methodology for assessing the cultural, political, and social meanings of trauma in the lives of civilian populations and how these traumatic experiences alter the everyday lives of the affected individuals.
The Post-War Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU) specialises in the academic research, teaching and consultancy in issues of peacebuilding, management and planning of reconstruction after war, humanitarian intervention in complex emergencies and post-war recovery. In all three areas of endeavour, the Unit strives towards excellence and adopts innovative and original approaches.
