Experiences from the European project “EU Street Violence”

In partnership with the project EU Street Violence


There are many forms of collective violence: Violent groups and groups that turn violent. Troublesome youth groups and gangs as well as excesses and riots.  Often made of youngsters. The constitution of the group as well the emergence of violence is more or less spontaneous.  This round table discussion asks: how can these phenomena of collective violence can be prevented? And for that purpose: What do we know about these phenomena? What is the logic behind them?  What are practices and methods that seem adequate to address them? The discussion will be able to build on the results of the EU STREET VIOLENCE project, which has now brought together European insights in an online database.
