In December 2015, photographer Magda Rakita and writer Mark de Rond travelled to Afghanistan to investigate how more than three decades of war and endemic violence has impacted the nation’s psyche. Here Professor de Rond discusses the neuro-psychiatric hospital they visited, and the lack of PTSD diagnoses. An LSE Arts exhibition of 16 images from the trip is on display in the atrium of LSE’s Old Building until 9 December.
