VC Dr Max Price"Violence is a topic of concern for everyone– " - VC Dr Max Price.

The 'culture of violence' in South Africa, violence in schools and in communities, and innovative responses to violence, were but a few of the topics raised at the first conference of the UCT Safety & Violence Initiative (SaVI), hosted on 8 and 9 September.

At the event, experts in these fields, some from as far afield as Jamaica, Scotland, and Switzerland, shared their insights on the topics.

"Violence is a topic of concern for everyone in South Africa," said the vice-chancellor, Dr Max Price, in his opening talk, "and through SaVI, UCT hopes to make a difference in this area."
