Today’s episode is part of our Seminar Series, in which we facilitate discussions on work conducted by teams of academic researchers and practitioners that relates to one of four thematic topics: 1) Crime Reduction & Police Accountability, 2) Climate Change Governance, 3) Displacement, Migration, & Integration, and 4) Democracy, Conflict, & Polarization.This episode focuses on Displacement, Migration, and Integration,  presenting a discussion with researcher Andrés Moya (UniAndes), along with Cristina Gutierrez de Piñeres (United Way Colombia) and Diana María Pineda Ruiz (Fundación Éxito), representatives from the organizations that implemented the project's program in Tumaco, Colombia—a territory rife with armed conflict due to the drug trade. The study analyzed how the pandemic affected mental health and parenting stress among caregivers, many of whom are internally displaced persons (IDPs), through a psychosocial program that seeks to restore maternal mental health and improve early childhood development among violence-exposed families.

Along with the research team, we are joined by Bill Doherty, co-founder of Braver Angels, a citizens’ organization uniting red and blue Americans in a working alliance to depolarize America. Braver Angels recently worked with the researchers to run a randomized controlled trial of workshops to study one model of depolarizing partisans—reciprocal group reflection, inspired by marital counseling—to find out whether it significantly reduces polarization according to explicit and implicit measures and increases participants’ support for depolarization. David Broockman, EGAP member and Associate Professor of Political Science at UC Berkeley, moderates the conversation.
