Citation: James D. WRIGHT (ed.), International encyclopaedia of social & behavioural science. 2nd Edition, Oxford : Elsevier, 2015, pp. 430-436
The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the ways in which political violence and social movements connect, as well as of the ways in which these connections are studied in academia. It delineates and expands on three specific topics: the emergence of political violence, the disengagement from it, and the consequences of it. The reviews of violence emergence and disengagement are broken down by the level of analysis into macro, meso, and micro; the review of the consequences of violence is broken down into the political, economic, social, and biographical areas. At the conclusion of this article, we offer brief remarks on the field’s future directions.
