Description
"This book examines civilian survival strategies during conflict. Civilians select one or more survival strategies from a repertoire of available survival strategies. I focus on migration and community support specifically. To select either of these actions, civilians need motivation and opportunity. Evidence for this argument comes from interviews with over 200 Syrian refugees, Somali refugees, and secondary source materials. I find that motivation is driven by the processes of trauma, PTSD or PTG that violent experiences can trigger. With PTSD, people undergo narrative ruptures more quickly, whereas PTG delays narrative ruptures. Opportunity, meanwhile, is driven by whether people hold an advantaged social status, which is often referred to as wasta in Syria"--,Provided by publisher.
