Collective Stretegies for Human Development in War and Its Long Shadow

This special issue of Human Development presents theories, methods,
and findings coming from innovative research on interventions.
It emphasizes collective strategies for child and youth
reflection and development during and after violent conflicts,
displacement, and major cultural change. The articles focus on
practice-based research. The case studies describe interventions
in civic engagement, community reconciliation, spontaneous education
practices, and storytelling in community organizations in
Africa, Latin America, the Western Balkans, and the United States.
The unique approaches and commentaries throughout these articles
complement the typical focus on trauma .The authors consider
how children and youth make sense of the extreme challenge
of their changing environments. Overall, this publication provides
researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and funders with valuable
insight into the cognitive, social, and emotional capacities of
children and youth.[Cover Page], [Annoucement]
