Juvenile bodily violence in the countryside and the city, 1960-2005.


Keywords: juvenile violence, social control, rural and urban areas
Key question: how do forms of juvenile violence emerge as social interaction in rural and urban contexts?
Understanding the appearances between forms of juvenile violence on the one hand and different and changing social contexts (rural and urban) on the other hand is the main aim of the project. The project offers an empirical, predominantly qualitative, analysis of juvenile bodily violence in (semi-)public spaces in rural and urban areas between 1960-2005.
