Cultural Representations of Identity, Trauma, and Transnationalism among Dinka Refugees: Implications for Conflict Analysis and Resolution

Tina Jaeckle, Alexia Georgakopoulos


This research, situated in a conflict, social construction, and social ecological theoretical framework, employed
ethnographic semistructured interviews with 10 Dinka refugees to document social constructions of identity,
trauma, and transnationalism, three influential variables in understanding conflict perceptions within this specific
group. Findings and implications include the impact on cognitive structural features such as frames, beliefs,
scripts, rules, and problem appraisals which allow for a deeper understanding of the construction and
interpretation of interpersonal conflict analysis and resolution.
