Empathy Building as Violence Prevention

Throughout the month of July, SEAN-CSO focused on the theme of empathy-building as violence prevention. Although empathy itself is difficult to define in practice, there are studies trying to link empathy-building and the prevention of violent behaviors. Some researchers have tried to solve the puzzle by studying how neuroscience might have an impact on empathy, while other researchers and practitioners mainly focused on the practice of empathy-building towards the society to prevent violence.

This month, we researched to solve these puzzles, organized a webinar, and interviewed a figure regarding how empathy-building might be a way to prevent violence.
