Description

What is the relationship between social cohesion and violence? Can social cohesion act as a protective factor against violence in the developing world? These were central questions of a three-year research project in Brazil and South Africa.

The research was carried out by the Human Science Research Council (HSRC) Democracy and Governance Programme with funding from the Safe and Inclusive Cities Programme (by the IDRC and the British Department for International Development).

This infographic presents key insights and recommendations from the research.
