The theme of the 5th conference is about fundamental rights for the victims of war. These casualties result in a migratory flow that exceeds the carrying capacity of the developed and underdeveloped countries, which currently enjoy peace and enviable economic stability. In the face of excessive suffering in refugee migration patterns in recent years and increasing uncertainty in countries in armed conflict, the high growth of young and unemployed populations in developing countries, uncertainty about political and economic future, growing unrest and fears in host countries around the world. All of these above-mentioned problems lead to fundamental questions about the overall mental health of its distressed populations that go beyond the skills of a single body of professionals and require transdisciplinary and cross-cultural approaches to solve the problems of global health, mediation and field conflict management in medical, social and humanitarian work.
