Abstract

It is now generally accepted that both forced separation and forced relocationhave had devastating consequences in terms of social and cultural dislocationand have impacted on the health and wellbeing of subsequent generations.However, until recently there has been little or no empirical data to scientificallydocument the nature and extent of these intergenerational effects. In thispaper, the authors seek to address this gap in the research.
