Identity-Based Mass Violence in Cities: Edited Volume Launch Meeting

Invitation Only

For two years, the Stanley Center for Peace and Security and the Violence, Inequality and Power Lab (VIP Lab, formerly Impact:Peace) at the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice have led an exploration of the concept of Identity Based Mass Violence (IBMV) in urban contexts. As a next step, we are publishing an edited volume focused on articulating the conceptual case and offering practical guidance for investing in the prevention of identity-based mass violence at the city level. The volume will be co-edited by the Stanley Center for Peace and Security, Rachel Locke of the VIP Lab, and Andrei Serbin Pont of La Coordinadora Regional de Investigaciones Económicas y Sociales (CRIES).

This project aims to advance the thinking on identity-based mass violence in urban contexts through reinforcing a conceptual foundation and forging relationships among thinkers and practitioners whose work supports this foundation. By bringing together those who have helped orient the direction of the volume and those who will be contributing to its substance, it will further enhance the connections between the sections of the volume, its impact and our collective and individual work.
