CFP: Violence

Conference: The Violence Project: 13th Global Meeting
Place: Dubrovnik, Croatia
Date: May 10-12, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: January 23, 2015
Description: »This conference is one of a continuing series that aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus on Violence. Our intention is to contribute to the body of thought which seeks to understand the nature and causes of this endemic feature of society. Such a complex phenomenon has many faces, a multitude of contexts (real or imagined), and many possible explanations in relation to causation and to the role Violence has played and still plays in societies all over the world and at every stage of development. The scale of Violence is vast, ranging from genocide, systematised torture and extermination through to the individual dispute in the family or the playground. Perpetrators may be states, political or religious factions within states, military groups, state or private institutions, communities, gangs, families or individuals. The range of possible victims is equally diverse, ranging from the self to other individuals, families, racial, religious or ethnic groups, societal institutions, business corporations, groups within societies, states, and nations.«
