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.
The International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV) brings together an international community of researchers in order to construct “exiting violence” as a new field of study. Composed of thematic working groups, this panel aims to produce both knowledge and recommendations for policy makers and civil society. Launched in 2017, the first phase of the Panel produced a report that will be published in the second half of 2019.
Seminar sessions will take place in the meeting room A335 at 54 bd Raspail 75 006 Paris, except the introductory session and the roudtable for which the place will be subsequently specified.

While there exists a substantial amount of research on the subject of violence, both its causes and modalities, little exists on exiting violence.
Contemporary forms of violence, their tragic consequences – exile, forced migration, all sorts of crises – and the challenges encountered by those who are working towards putting an end to these issues, invite us to bridge this gap and begin laying the groundwork for a new research field.
Violence in all its forms has always been an object of study in the humanities and social sciences, but emergence from violence has not, despite the abundance of the literature. Both of these phenomena, which are distinct and yet tightly linked, are given a fresh look under the Violence and Exiting Violence platform.
