Abstract

Repression is traditionally understood as actions by state authorities, typically the police or intelligence apparatus, raising the costs of collective action by non-state actors. However, political extremists with a propensity for violence may also experience repression from members of civil society. The relationship between repression and political violence is complex because repression may have both positive and negative effects on violence, depending on the circumstances and type of repression employed. While repression may cause political violence, it may also be caused by political violence. Untangling the seemingly unpredictable and at times contradictory effects of repression on political violence is an important task for researchers. Therefore, this panel welcomes both quantitative and qualitative investigations into the relationship between repression and political violence.
