Küyerel, The Global and Local Thought Association, together with KONDA has conducted a research on the sociological and cultural roots and causes of violence in Turkey earlier in 2018 with the support of Heinrich Böll Stiftung.

The research was carried out with the intention to understand the underlying sociological and cultural factors behind various forms and practices of violence that people above 18 years of age experience in their daily lives. Furthermore, it intended to comprehend how these people perceive and assess various forms of violence that they are encountering. The starting point of the research was the observation that actual incidents of violence be it in schools, on the street, in public transportation or elsewhere have showed an increase in the last years, by especially targeting those with different identities.
