The Violence Prevention Forum (VPF) is a South African initiative that aims to reduce violence by relationship building, evidence sharing, and strengthening the workforce. It does this by bringing together government, civil society, researchers, international organisations, development partners, and the private sector to explore new ways of communication and collaboration, identify and grow evidence-based interventions, inform policies, and increase advocacy for violence prevention.

The VPF defines violence prevention as “the whole of society working deliberately and sustainably to reduce sources of harm and inequality, and heal woundedness, by intentionally growing an ethic of mutual care, respect, and inclusion to build peace.”

The Institute for Security Studies convenes the VPF, led by a multi-sectoral Driver Group that determines the strategic direction of the Forum.
