What is Violence?

The World Health Organization (WHO)defines violence as “a scenario in which physical force or power is used to another person in the form of a deliberate threat or actuality, resulting in or likely to result in damage, death, or psychological harmto the person exposed.”


Domestic violence includes abuse against children, the elderly, and, in particular, violence against womenby a spouse. In both rich and developing countries, violence is a major public health issue. Violence against women is a major issue all around the world.

Acts of violence, according to lawyers, are “aggressive and rudeness that people engage in against their like, causing substantial or insignificant damage or injury to them.” This concept highlights the connection between violence and the use of force that results in irreversible physical injury. Children, women, and the elderly are the most vulnerable to violence.

Individual violence is researched within the umbrella of domestic violence in this regard. Individual violence, on the other hand, is a component that contributes to collective violence. The consequent damages are also assessed from an individual standpoint, based on the incident that person has gone through. The employment of weapons is one of the most common methods seen in violent activities.

Firearms, in addition to being a component that aggravates the outcome of violence, are also a factor that causes violence. With the growth of private weapons, there has been a significant surge in both violent and death-ending incidents around the world, including our own nation. Murders committed with guns account for a significant portion of the total. 60% of violent deaths include the use of a firearm.










social media violence

against women

Physical, emotional, sexual, and economic violence are the four main types of violence against women. Physical violence is defined as a breach of the wounded person’s physical integrity. The violence produced by the use of physical force can inflict temporary or permanent harm to a person’s body, and can even result in death. Physical violence is also used in the practice of sexual violence. However, in order to be classified as sexual violence, the act must be of the magnitude of an assault on the person’s sexual integrity. This type of attack does not necessarily have to be physical. Sexual violence includes, for example, verbal sexual harassment. When emotional and economic violence occurs, no conclusions are made. In reality, they are the most prevalent, but also the least common, and hence the most difficult kinds of violence to combat.

against children

Cases of violence against children are the ones that do the most harm among all cases of violence, and they are the ones that are the most concealed and unreported. Violence against children is commonly referred to as child abuse since it impedes the child’s development. In its widest meaning, physical abuse is described as “non-accidental damage to a kid.” The most prevalent type of instance is physical abuse and beating of a youngster. Physical abuse is defined as “abuse that causes the appearance of ecchymoses, fractures, burns, and other lesions that inflict physical harm to the body.” Non-accidental injuries and child abuse are examples of physical abuse.

against refugees

A refugee is “a person who has a well-founded fear of being persecuted because of his/her race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion and therefore leaves his/her country and is unable or unwilling to return because of his/her fear”. Persons with refugee status are already in their own country, in the process of escape, in the country of asylum; They are the victims of many forms of violence such as rape, persecution, terrorism and ethnic cleansing. Violence against refugee women is as common as children. They are exposed to situations such as sexual and physical violence against women, exploitation and discrimination, being forced into sex work.

against disabled

Disabled violence has been the most conspicuous category of acts against disabled persons in recent years. The limitation imposed by handicap also limits people’s responses when they are subjected to violence. Basically, the issue is that a person with a physical or mental impairment that restricts one or more key daily tasks is restricted in response. In addition, caregiver aggression comes to the fore in this demographic, where care is more significant.

against employee

“Mobbing” is a process that includes various stages. Various psychological factors are involved in the formation process and adversely affect the health of the targeted person. The frequency, repetition and duration of the “mobbing” that affect the victim the most. The greater the psychological violence and the longer its duration, the greater its effect. The private and social life of the person who becomes unhappy and withdrawn by being exposed to psychological violence is affected. One of the ways frequently used in the process of “mobbing” is to defame or defame the victim. Although the victim’s performance, ability and skill are high, they are shown as inadequate or some mistakes that were not subject to complaint before may be seen as a problem.
