Research and Advocacy

Our research is based on an approach which combines theoretical findings with empirical data. We work closely with academics and policy-making institutions, both nationally and internationally, to disseminate our research and promote the debate on violence prevention.

The Violence Research Centre aims to contribute to the advancement of the understanding of the causes, the consequences, and the prevention of interpersonal violence. This includes childhood aggression, bullying, assault and robbery, homicide, domestic abuse and sexual violence. The Centre takes an interdisciplinary perspective that draws on theoretical approaches and empirical findings from criminology, psychology, biology, political science, sociology, and history.
