The Clinic in Crisis symposium took place at Brown University on May 9 and 10, 2014. This two-day symposium explored the wide-ranging and conflicting roles of clinicians in situations of political violence and/or social unrest, including but not limited to:
- The dilemmas of care and triage that clinicians face under situations of political instability
- The clinic and clinicians as targets of violence
- The clinic as safe-haven or refuge from unrest - The complicity of clinical professionals in the control, management, and detention of subjugated populations
- Impediments realizing professional commitments to medical neutrality
Papers from a range of social science and humanities disciplines were presented and reviewed by external discussants.
