  • Mario Domínguez Sánchez-Pinilla Associated Professor at Faculty of Political Science and Sociology, University of Madrid, Spain
  • Isis Sánchez Estellés Researcher in Universidad de Valencia, Spain
Keywords: political violence, typologies of violence, symbolic violence, terrorism


After cited several types of violence in part I, they do not have the same significance, neither the same meaning nor the same geopolitical scale. Maybe, specificity of political violence consists of its occurrence when relations are no longer conceivable or negotiable not even institutionalized or instituted, in other words, when symbolization fails and public spaces where violence could be debated don't exist or are fragmentary or unbalanced.
