A conceptual framework for violence reduction (English)

Worldwide, violence is emerging as a significant economic, social welfare, health, and governance issue. The conceptual framework presented in this paper identifies a number of important components of effective violence reduction. 1) While the categorization of violence varies widely, the concept of political, economic, and social violence as a continuum goes some way towards combining the somewhat fragmented distinctions identified elsewhere in the literature. 2) Factors causing violence can be analyzed at a number of different levels: individual, interpersonal, institutional, and structural. 3) It is useful to analyze how violence can erode physical, human, social, and natural capital and their associated assets. 4) The description of different interventions to reduce violence shows how interventions can be approached not only from the perspective of different disciplines but also from perspectives that focus on violence control, prevention, or reduction through rebuilding social capital. 5) In terms of potential concrete interventions, the proposal for violence reduction in Colombia illustrates the importance of designing simultaneous violence reduction measures at national, sectoral, and local levels. ... See More +
