Friend's Meeting House
6 Mount Street
Fatal violence has risen for the third consecutive year with many pointing to the failures of recent austerity policies, youth exclusion, and increasing inequalities and poverty. This event brings together academics, policy-makers and third sector actors through a series of talks to discuss recent trends in fatal violence and to consider the fundamental role of local communities in shaping responses to fatal violence.
Our panels will consist of academics discussing recent research on local and national homicide trends, third sector organisations dealing with the direct effects of fatal violence in the city, and policy-makers commenting on strategic responses in the city.
The event will address a range of questions. What are the underlying social and economic causes of recent trends of fatal violence? How do debates on poverty and inequality, youth empowerment, and policing feature in these explanations? Which groups are most likely to be affected by fatal violence and what support is available? Come along to this event and become part of the conversation on how we could and should respond to fatal violence.
