‘Privilege violence’: why polarised democracies yield violence

Where wealth and power is concentrated, security institutions may be instrumentalised to protect the economic and political elite at the expense of wider security and rule of law. Dr Rachel Kleinfeld calls this type of violence Privilege Violence, because it stems not from a state that is weak – but from a power structure that enables violence against some citizens as the price for maintaining extreme privilege.
