How has violence been understood in different ages and cultures? How is it defined today? What kind of factors have influenced the toleration of violence in different communities? Which institutions have had the power to define and address violence? How has the legislators' conception of punishable violence changed? Have the interventions of the community, health care and the institutions of control into domestic violence been effective?
The purpose of the conference is to bring together experts on interpersonal violence in the fields of social and legal studies, history, cultural research, psychology and health care. The intention is to create a forum in which experts on violence from different disciplines can present and compare their research methods and results and engage in a dialogue to promote interdisciplinary cooperation.
