Violence is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes twice a year. It aims to develop understanding about violence, but also to build up a delineated field of research for preventing and exiting violence, with its contributions and debates. More particularly, the journal is focused on physical, political or social violence, but also deals with State violence, delinquency and crime for instance. When asking crosscutting issues, Violence will look at various regions of the world, from the local to the global.

Violence publishes:
• Research articles
• Debates
• Interviews and Portraits
• “State of the art” articles

Violence: A Journal aims to develop understanding about violence, but also to build up a delineated field of research for preventing and exiting violence, with its contributions and debates. More particularly, the journal is focused on physical, political or social violence, but also deals with State violence, delinquency and crime for instance. When asking crosscutting issues, Violence will look at various regions of the world, from the local – such as a specific country or even a city - to the global.
