Urban violence in 40 cities in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America will be investigated as part of an ambitious Canadian-British funded research project.
The initiative will seek to understand the complex causes of urban violence and find practical solutions. The US$11 million Safe and Inclusive Cities Initiative, funded by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and Britain’s Department for International Development (DfID), will provide 15 research teams with grants of up to US$500,000 each.
The Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa will compare the experience in Rio with a different strategy in Cape Town, South Africa.
