An End to Violence

  • Michel Wieviorka
Chapter

Abstract

There are a number of approaches which can be used in the analysis of violence. The one set out here is based on the concept of subject—a concept which is itself presented in all its complexity, including the sub-categories of floating subject, hyper-subject, anti-subject, etc. However, the analysis of violence is not uniquely an analytical problem, as the phenomenon must be studied in its historical and material forms. Finally, an innovation in the examination of the emergence of violence consists in also taking into account the subjectivity of the victims. Policies concerning the subject must at one and the same time take into consideration both the characteristics of the violent actor, the historical context, and the expectations of the victims.
