Introduction to the societal violence scale : Physical integrity rights violations and nonstate actors

Cornett, Linda; Haschke, Peter and Gibney, Mark LU (2016) In Human Rights Quarterly 38(4). p.1102-1108
Abstract

Measures of physical integrity rights violations typically focus on abuses by state actors. However, nonstate actors also represent a grave threat to personal security. This article introduces the Societal Violence Scale (SVS) which uses the US State Department Human Rights reports as a basis for developing a new scale of physical integrity rights abuses by nonstate actors to gain a more comprehensive, but at the same time disaggregated, picture of human security threats across the globe.
