Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry - Committees - International


International Relations

The Committee on International Relations initiates analysis of psychological processes in international affairs.  In this endeavor, the committee draws from the expertise of consultants from a broad range of disciplines, including political scientists, historians and diplomats.  The Committee has so far produced two monographs entitled Self-Involvement in the Middle East Conflict (1978) and Us and Them: The Psychology of Ethno-Nationalism (1987).  It is currently pursuing a psychopolitical understanding of fundamentalism.
