Violence: An international journal is launching a call for papers on the theme “The impact of terrorism”. This theme section will be coordinated by Farhad KHOSROKHAVAR (EHESS) and Michel WIEVIORKA (EHESS, Foundation Maison des sciences de l’homme).
This session will tackle the study of social and historical transformations that law enforcement professions (armed forces, jurists, magistrates) have undergone in the past decades when met with conflictual situations caracterized by a high degree of uncertainty regarding the nature of the violences that emerge from them.
In 2015, a few months after the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher (Kosher), the FMSH launched its Platform on Violence and Exiting Violence to improve understanding of the different stages that characterize violence, from entry (radicalization, arming, training, acting out, etc.) to exit (transitional justice, demobilization, memory, trauma, prevention, etc.), as well as its various forms (mafia, organized crime, digital radicalization, etc.).
For the fifth consecutive year, the Platform on Violence and Exiting Violence seminar continues to invite internationally renowned researchers to deepen our understanding of the phenomena of violence and to make the exit from violence a specific and innovative field of research.
The 2020 programme is in line with this desire to open up and explore new, emerging fields of research, working at the crossroads of disciplines that are sometimes too little convened to grasp the processes of entry/non-entry/exit from violence.
After more than 40 years of collaboration with the journal Social Science Information, MSH Publishing continues its partnership with the publisher SAGE for the launch of its new journal Violence: an international journal.

Mediterranean and Sub-Saharan Africa concentrates episodes of extreme violence and sources of potential conflicts and geopolitical upheavals. The aim of the conference was to study these violences, from local standpoints to global forms, as well as the means to escape from it.
