Medical and Public Health research into the psycho-social (PS), mental health (MH), human capital (HC) /social capital (SC) effects on communities internationally affected by low intensity conflict (LIC) and Small Arms / Light Weapons (SALW). First Application:
The PS/MH, HC/SC effects of anti-personnel mines (APM), explosive remnants of war (ERW), and Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) in post-conflict Sri Lanka and Kosovo.
Vast attention has been given to the physical/biological effects of conflict; virtually none has been given to the socio-economic and psycho-social impact on affected communities suffering from conflict and post-conflict trauma, which inherently affects a community's ability to respond positively to recovery and development efforts. Often, inattention to these factors will have generational effects in terms of the perpetuation of stress, trauma, and regional security issues connected to continued armed violence. For the first time, we can establish scientific baseline data on affected communities, determining the need for specific interventions, as well as providing hard data-based monitoring and evaluation (M & E) of such interventions based on these scientific, methodological protocols (comprising proprietary IP).
Partners: Harvard Medical School / Disaster Medicine Section, International Center for Disaster Resilience (ICDR), Vrije Universiteit Medisch Centrum (VUMC, Amsterdam, the Netherlands).

I have been working on a collaborative peace video project website, and as I understand that you work with HMF, I though you might be interested in contributing. The concept, very basically, is that filmmakers can work together from all over the world, to help each other complete peace videos.
The website is just a basic template, but I'd love to get some feedback on it and get people interested in posting videos soon. Please check it out:
