Hanna Kienzler – Mental health system reform in the occupied Palestinian Territory

11 April 2017 18:00 to 21:00

British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London

Mental health system reforms in development contexts are carried out worldwide through complex international collaborations that claim to follow evidence-based standards, based on the presumption that only through a systemic approach can appropriate mental health care and psychosocial support be provided to populations. In this talk, Dr Kienzler will question this line of argument by highlighting the impact of concrete political constellations, development agendas, local and global socioeconomic contexts, and the interactions between differently positioned actors on mental health system reform processes. To illustrate how public secrets unfold on the ground, Dr Kienzler will present a case study that examines how mental health system reform processes in the West Bank are shaped by particular political events and power inequalities and investigates the ways in which local and international mental health providers relate to these processes. 


This is the third lecture in our 2016/17 lecture series, People, Power & Place.
