Project Paper Series "Violence Research and Development"
The Project Paper Series documents results of a pilot project that integrates higher education training in social science research and cross-regional comparative violence research. The overall aims of the project is to empower young academics in Africa, Asia and Latin America, so that they can contribute to international violence research, publish their findings nationally and internationally, and ultimately develop scientifically grounded political and civil-society responses. The research is structured in five research lines (see link)
