I am interested in how and under which conditions peaceful protests have developed into violent street protests, which forms of violence are chosen, and how this has transformed over time. The city and street as spaces of conflictual, political contestation are at the center of my research. At TraCe, I want to find out to what extent the spatial conditions in the city play a role in the emergence of political violence and how actors adapt their strategies and practices accordingly. In order to answer this, I will focus on political violence in cities in the 20th century.
