How Chronic Violence Affects Human Development: Assessing the Contributions of Tani Adams in Central America and Beyond

        

What happens to us when it becomes “normal” to live with high levels of chronic violence? How does it affect our development as individuals, how we raise our children and relate to others in society, our attitudes and actions as citizens, and the ways we are governed? These were the questions that motivated the work of Tani Adams and led her to develop the Chronic Violence and Human Development Framework. We were joined for a discussion about the important intellectual and policy contributions of Adams’ work by experts and practitioners who worked alongside her to develop her ideas and see them implemented.

Co-sponsored with the Inter-American Foundation.
