I randomly assigned Iraqi Christians displaced by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to an all-Christian soccer team or to a team mixed with Muslims.

The intervention did not substantially affect behaviors in other social contexts, such as patronizing a restaurant in Muslim-dominated Mosu...

Understanding the mental health needs of people leaving the Armed Forces
By Andy Bell The mental health of people returning to civilian life after serving in the Armed Forces has been a major concern for public policy over the last decade. Conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq in particular have raised awareness and understanding of the emotional and psychological challenges some men and women face when they leave the Forces. These concerns have brought about some significant responses, including the development of new and expanded mental health support services for both serving personnel and veterans, from both the NHS and the charitable sector. There has also been a great deal of research seeking...

‘I Have the Skills, I Have the Training.’ How Refugee Doctors Are Helping the U.S. Fight COVID-19 Even Without a Medical License
Long before he started medical school in Baghdad, Ahmed Al-Sarray knew he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. By the time he graduated in 2015, that search for purpose evolved into a passion for health care in times of crisis. Even a grueling medical residency in the hardest-hit emergency rooms and trauma wards of Baghdad’s war-torn hospitals wasn’t enough to deter him. But the militants were. As rival militias flooded Al-Sarray’s emergency ward starting in 2017, he found himself fighting for his own life as much as those of his patients.
