Crisis and Security Management: Governance of Violence

Institution Logo Leiden University

In the track Governance of Violence, of the MSc Crisis and Security Management, you will focus on interpersonal violence (i.e. violence taking place between individuals), the most common types including physical violence and sexual violence. In four in-depth courses you will study the origins, correlates, mechanisms, social contexts, and resilience after experiencing violence. These courses will allow students to become familiar with the nature and scope of violence; resilience to violence; and knowledge of governance and strategies on how to respond to, and ultimately, prevent violence.

The study of violence is relevant not only because of the impact on primary victims, but also because the resulting ripple effect goes far beyond the initial act, and can create a climate of fear and insecurity, whilst potentially undermining national security.
