Tight Ropes and Bootstraps: Enabling Violence affected Young Adults deal with Trauma

About the Project:  

The project aimed to study the impact of prolonged violence on young Muslim men and women in conflict-prone neighborhoods in Hyderabad. Drawing on learnings from the Minority Women Negotiating Citizenship project, it attempted to map the socio-economic and psycho-social dimensions of trauma and conduct a needs assessment to inform and enable processes of reintegration. The project looked at issues of access to various institutions, networks, programs, socio-cultural and political spaces and strengthened the capacity of a cohort of young adults(called youth researchers) in building sustainable linkages with state and civil-society institutions. The project was attentive to the gendered dimensions of this trauma and also endeavoured to discover systematic ways communities in post-conflict situations can create access to state and civil-society for themselves.
