Political Violence at a Glance Greatest Hits

 

Political Violence At A Glance was created in 2008, to answers questions on the most pressing problems related to violence and protest in the world’s conflict zones. Twelve years on, and we are as committed as ever to using rigorous research to improve policies and practices in ways that help reduce conflict and build lasting peace. In fact, we think it’s more important than ever to bring readers—policymakers, academics, activists, and average citizens—straightforward analysis on the trends shaping our world.

For more than a decade, our stellar community of contributors has written smart, provocative analysis on everything from terrorism, civil wars, and state repression, to pop culture, art, nonviolent resistance, and ethics. As we look out across 2020, here’s a look back at some of our greatest hits (so far), which we suspect may be relevant for thinking about the emerging fault lines ahead.
