Wars, conflicts, and genocides, are not indivisible events. Rather, they are the aggregates of many distinct acts of violence, each with its own causes and contexts. At Violence Studies Oxford, it is our contention that to best understand the aggregate, we should first examine these micro-episodes. Examining violence as a separate phenomenon to war allows the researcher to ascertain how and why violence happens, the elements which contain or constrain it, and the factors which determine its nature and intensity.
