What: Preventing Gun Violence: Public Health and Public Policy Approaches

The forum that will bring experts to discuss approaches to preventing or tackling the problem of gun violence from the perspectives of public health and public policy approaches. It is well known that gun violence is a particular public policy challenge in the U.S., as the nation faces a tension between honoring the rights of gun advocates and owners on the one hand, and trying to keep all citizens safe from gun violence on the other hand. In recent decades, public health analysts have addressed gun violence by developing a public health framework that aims to proactively and comprehensively respond to underlying contributing factors. However, certain elements of the public health approach have been seen as controversial, such as the degree to which the framework includes (or fails to include) law enforcement as a critical tool in preventing gun violence and public health's measurement of social burden.
