An international group of analysts, scholars and a film director discuss the phenomena of hate and the surge of nationalism in today’s world. The documentary No Human Is Illegal is used to stimulate participants’ engagement. This documentary captures the drama of the refugee as he or she arrives ‘spit out’ by the sea on the coast of the Greek island of Lesvos. This panel aims to intertwine the social and the clinical, starting with the global rise of nationalism and continuing with the transgenerational transmission of disassociated hate as it manifests as trauma in our clinical work with patients.
