Experiencing Violence

This project seeks to develop better understanding of how violence is conceptualised and explained.

Violence is a near ever-present reality for much of humanity, but the narratives and experiences of violence are poorly understood in the public imagination and policy process. This project aims to re-assess our approach to violence by seeking to develop better understanding of how violence is defined. It examines the way we approach the understanding of violence and seek to interpret it, embracing the full complexity of violence as a social, historical and political phenomenon, as well as the implications that this has for research and policy engagement.
