Can Scotland shake off its violent reputation?

AQMeN Director Professor Susan McVie explores Scotland's reputation as 'the most violent country in the developed world'. Drawing on the latest figures from the Scottish Government Homicide in Scotland 2014-15 bulletin, together with data from the 2012/13 Scottish Crime and Justice SurveyAQMeN research on crime and victimisation and a number of international and UK comparative studies, Professor McVie looks at whether these data really add up to reflect such a negative picture of Scotland.
