Research by Elizabeth Brabec, professor of landscape architecture and regional planning, on refugee camps and their gardens as important agents of providing a sense of security and control to people experiencing great trauma in their lives, has been featured the September 2018 issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine.

A proxy for place-making, and an important place for healing, Brabec says that gardens are critical refuges for adults and children in camps and in resettlement communities.
