Urban violence is an increasingly significant but much misunderstood global phenomenon.

The Urban Tipping Point project seeks to understand how, why, and under what circumstances the conflict inherent to city living can tip over into generalised violence, focusing in particular on the role played by factors such as poverty, youth, political exclusion, and gender-based insecurity.

The project brings together researchers from North and South, and will seek to promote innovative policy initiatives aiming to break strategic linkages within urban violence chains.
