Security, Development and Democracy Seminar Series 2008 - 2009

12 September 2008 | Seminar

Democracy and Violence

This seminar series is organised jointly by the Leeds University Centre for Democratisation Studies, the School of Politics and International Studies and the Department of Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Leeds.

It explores the challenge of violence to contemporary democracies in a variety of settings, ranging from Britain to the Middle East and Latin America. It brought together a range of expert speakers from Britain and North America to debate the nature of political violence, its impact on democratic politics, and explored possible means through which alternatives to violent confrontation might be developed.

Presentations are 40 minutes followed by discussion, comments and questions from the audience.
