Abstract

Violence is a phenomenon that is present in all societies, whether at the individual or public level, and for a variety of motivations that range from the personal and psychological to the social, political, ideological and economic. The potential for violence exists within every individual, but can either be weakened through educational, social and cultural processes that elevate individuals to higher values and standards for resolving tensions and conflicts, or strengthened by educational, social and cultural processes that further fuel conflict and violence.
