Public Lecture: The changing landscape of political violence

Lecture led by Professor Stathis Kalyvas as part of Newcastle University's Insights Public Lecture Series

Date/Time: Tuesday 16 October, 17:30 - 18:45

Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University

Free admission, all seats allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

We frequently speak of terrorism, civil war, mass population displacement, human rights abuses, or genocide, among many other instances of violence, but little is known about how these phenomena relate to each other. This lecture seeks to redefine our understanding of political violence with a framework that attempts to connect the various factors that make up the complex landscape of political violence.


Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. 

Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
