New article on International Feminist Journal of Politics: Winning the Battle but Losing the War on Violence

Following on from the Fay Gale Lecture in 2014, and the keynote address at the International Feminist Journal of Politics Conference, Professor Jacqui True has published an article: Winning the Battle but Losing the War on Violence: A Feminist perspective on the declining global violence thesis in the International Feminist Journal of Politics. This article draws on the same themes as the two keynotes and expands on the critique of Steven Pinker’s book, The Better Angels of Our Nature, and draws on accounts of gendered violence to highlight the fatal flaw in declinist analyses of global violence.
