More about IPEV:

The International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV), launched in 2017 and completed in 2021, was intended to create an international and interdisciplinary community of researchers working on exit from violence. Coordinated by the FMSH and supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, IPEV has brought together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to develop recommendations.
