EGAP 16: University of Cape Town, March 2016

A critical challenge facing governance is that of dealing with social violence in its various manifestations – addressing its causes, managing it in more constructive ways and seeking to prevent it through building more cohesive and peaceful societies. This workshop aims to highlight experimental research that explores the causes and dynamics of conflict and violence, as well as approaches to preventing or resolving violence, particularly interventions that address the root causes of conflict, and promote social cohesion.
