Abstract

This Section addresses current debates and newly emerging topics in political violence, including spatial and temporal dynamics of violence; political dimensions of sexual violence; the connections between non-violent action and political violence; and the strategic use of violence. It focuses on certain forms of violence that seem to be of increasing relevance once again, such as right wing extremism. And it sheds light on the relationship between militant groups, violent forms of action, and broader movements and milieus. The Section will be structured to map emerging areas of research and draw attention to key, contemporary theoretical debates, with the intention of highlighting relevant areas for further investigation.
