Violence Defied? Summary
The combating of violence in the public and semi-public domain remains high on the agendas of the government, municipalities, companies, schools and other institutions. The prevention of violence plays an important role in the steps taken, but, in general, little is known about the question of what works and what does not work in preventing violence. This report describes the results from a synthesis of 48 studies into the effects of the prevention of violence in the public and semi-public domain. The object of this synthesis was to gain an overview of effective or promising measures for the prevention of violence in the public and semi-public domain in the Netherlands and abroad. Added to this, this study was intended to generate insights into the mechanisms underlying effective or promising prevention measures and into the circumstances and contexts in which these are found to be effective. Different themes will be discussed. Is it better to offer prevention programmes at an early stage or is it more effective to implement programmes in the first classes of secondary education? Is a measure more effective if it is implemented throughout a school, or is a more individual approach more appropriate? Although this study shows that the effectiveness of many prevention measures is not studied, a number of recommendations are made with regard to the prevention of violence in the public and semi-public domain.

What is audiobook and how does it work?
Audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions. You can listen to audiobooks on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car entertainment system.
An electronic book, also known as an e-book or eBook, is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as “an electronic version of a printed book”,some e-books exist without a printed equivalent.
E-books can be read on dedicated e-reader devices, but also on any computer device that features a controllable viewing screen, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
