We are very pleased to extend an invitation to you to join us for a talk by Dr Chandré Gould, hosted by the Edinburgh Futures Institute in partnership with Moray House College of Education. Chandré is a senior research fellow in the Justice and Violence Prevention Programme at the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa. She has thirty years of research and advocacy experience addressing all forms of violence and its prevention. Since 2015, Chandré has convened and led the Violence Prevention Forum, a national dialogue platform for researchers, government officials, development partners, the private sector and NGOs to develop a sustainable basis for using and generating evidence to inform the prevention of violence in South Africa. The collaborative and multi-sectoral approach to violence prevention is very relevant to those working and studying in fields such as public policy, public health, justice and policing, and will have resonance with anyone seeking to understand how a collective undertaking and long-term partnership is utilised to address a significant societal challenge.
