Event description

Description

Fatal violence has risen nationally for the third consecutive year, with many pointing to the failures of recent austerity policies, youth exclusion, and increasing inequalities and poverty as the underlying causes of this rise. This event brings together academics, policy-makers and third sector actors to discuss these recent trends and to consider the influence of local communities in shaping responses to fatal violence

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.
