Urban Violence

Number of pages

This publication draws on a series of activities on the theme of urban violence carried out by the British Academy to examine violence as an urban process, as well as how the physical, material, and immaterial qualities of cities, past and present, encourage or prevent as well as shape violence in urban settings. It presents a number of articles that offer insights from a range of different perspectives including policymakers and researchers across the humanities and social sciences and across a range of historical and geographical contexts in both the Global North and South.
