Colette Daiute

Human Development & Political Violence
(Cambridge University Press, 2010)

Based on developmental theory, this book explains and illustrates how children and youth interact with environments defined by war or armed conflict and its aftermath, including displacement, poverty, political instability, and personal loss. In this case, the young people experiencing stress were inhabitants of the former Yugoslavia, and the case study for this inquiry was a workshop in four areas where youth participated in activities designed to promote their development. Analyses of their perspectives offer insights about developmental strategies for dealing with the threats and opportunities of war and major political change. Colette Daiute (Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in psychology and urban education.
