Few topics are in desperate need of attention today day as the issue of violence. For many scholars, one of the signs of contemporary times is insecurity, powerlessness, fear that the various types of violence will reach one’s life, either as members of a community or in terms of privacy, destabilizing individuals. Violence is present in most global cities. High crime rates are accompanied by social inequality, poverty, government bankruptcy, corruption, inefficiency of policies in the area of security and frustrations generated by the consumer society.

In this webinar, Miriam Abramovay - Kellogg Fellow (KILP-01) and Coordinator of Youth Public Policies at FLACSO (Latin American School of Social Sciences) - will help us understand a little more about the dilemmas around youth and violence in Brazil.
