War, conflict and natural disasters disrupt millions of lives around the world each year. With fighting and wars raging across the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia, death tolls are "on the rise" (Storm, 2015), and the United Nations recently estimated the cost of natural disasters at $300 billion per year (UN Global Assessment, 2015). Scholars working in the social sciences and humanities have long been looking beyond the casualties and economic impacts of such events, to examine the social and psychological consequences of such events on individuals, families and communities.
