The work with En kommun fri från våld (A municipality free from violence) is part of the project Livscykeln (Life cycle), which is financed through the EU Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme 2014–2020. In Livscykeln, we focus on long term work with violence prevention throughout life. The work includes getting fathers committed to equal parenting, and violence prevention measures in compulsory school and upper secondary school. The work is based on experience from implementing violence prevention programmes and supporting systematic work with violence prevention in municipalities. Throughout the years we have worked with many municipalities and. districts across the country, gathering experience and good examples of how to plan and improve the work.

In this inspirational publication, we share parts of what we have learned during the project, together with our partners. We focus on schools as an important hub in working with violence prevention, and how measures have developed in local conditions. We hope that this publication will contribute to an increased interest in violence prevention with a life cycle perspective.
