About Centre for the Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence, University of Guelph

The Centre for the Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence was established at the University of Guelph in 2005 through funding awarded to Professor Myrna Dawson by the Canadian Foundation of Innovation. The overarching objectives of the Centre are to create and mobilize knowledge about effective social and legal responses to violence through systematic and rigorous research, to transfer and exchange knowledge that can inform public policy which seeks to reduce and prevent violence, and to train future researchers who can further sustain violence prevention research.
