About the course 'Proximity of Violence'

In this course, we will look at relational proximity between victims and offenders of violence. Specifically, we will focus on the nature, extent, and aftermath of intimate partner, domestic and other interpersonal violence in national and global contexts as well as the implications and governance strategies for practice and policy. We will look at relational proximity through an interdisciplinary lens where different perspectives in theory from psychology, anthropology, public health, and criminology, research and practice are brought together to understand this complex phenomenon. We will consider risk factors for being a victim or offender of violence, norms and institutions that promote or discourage violence in relational settings, patterns of violence within relationships, and intergenerational and cultural transmission of violence.

Alongside the content-focused lectures, the course will also include some lectures and activities focused on developing core research skills. The core skill developed in this course is Data Analysis. You will work with quantitative data and apply statistical analyses to the data you gather. Those who are not familiar with basic quantitative skills are advised to read up on some basic concepts before the start of the course – the syllabus will point you towards some resources.
