last modified Nov 10, 2018 06:00 AM

On 20 October 2018, the Institute of Criminology was represented at the University's Festival of Ideas by an expert panel event at the Faculty of Law.

Entitled Extremes in violence: what can we learn from violent and peaceful societies and places? it investigated why some societies, institutions and places are highly violent, while others succeed to promote cooperation and mutual respect.

Prof Manuel Eisner, from the VRC, talked about the reasons why some societies are more violent than others. Prof Alison Liebling analysed prisons with higher instances of violence. Dr Graham Denyer Willis discussed what makes some neighbourhoods more violent than others. Dr Alex Sutherland focused on violent places.

We have now the full set of slides to accompany the recording of the event.
