WORKSHOP ON THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC COSTS
OF VIOLENCE: THE VALUE OF PREVENTION
April 28-29, 2011
APPROACH: This workshop will present an ecological life course framework for thinking about the impact of violence, to explore how the costs can be greater than typically conceived. Building from the individual to the community to the societal level, the workshop will examine the effect that violence has on development. Speakers will explore the ways in which a community can mitigate violence or the associated impacts.
