Urban Atrocities: Exploring Identity-Based Mass Violence in Cities
More news about the topic
As the world experiences rapid urbanization, leaders at the city level play an increasingly important role in ensuring that people lead lives free from fear, trauma, and violent conflict. More than 80% of violent deaths each year occur outside of conflict zones—primarily in urban areas—and there is often insufficient multilateral engagement from subnational leaders on this issue.
The Stanley Center for Peace and Security and Impact:Peace at the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice have partnered to commission research on the intersections between urban violence and mass violence, including lessons on how best to prevent identity-based mass violence (IBMV) at the city level.
