Nearly two decades into the 21st century, the existing and latent violence in our society —locally and globally— continues to be a matter of reflection, research, debate and public, institutional, academic and citizen concern. As in the past. We could say, simplifying the matter, “nothing new under the sun”. But there is something, new elements have appeared.

Certainly, as in so many other aspects of social life, the dynamics inherent in the changes resulting from the evolution of societies produce not only new situations and problems, but others that add different characteristics or nuances to the pre-existing ones that remain unresolved. Thus, emerging situations that also require solutions accumulate alongside previous ones that have not yet had them. The consequence of this is, in general, that the initial problem is accentuated, becomes entrenched, diversifies and broadens its dimensions, becomes more profoundly structural, and the possibilities of resolving it once and for all successfully become, if possible, even more complex and difficult to achieve.
