Violence, in all its forms, today constitutes a vast field of research in sociology, and in the social sciences.

The International Panel on Exiting Violence present its results at the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon.
