ALLIES – Teachers’ and Parents’ Alliance for Early Violence Prevention in Preschool, is an international two-year (2010-2012) research and development project. It aims to develop caring, community-based measures to prevent school violence. Implemented within a preschool context in dialogue with parents, the school community, and other supportive professionals, ALLIES examines ways to prevent non-systematic and systematic violence. It looks at hidden, subtle, and normalised violence through gender-sensitive and holistic perspectives.   ALLIES is funded by the European Commission Daphne III Programme and is coordinated by Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Oulu, Finland.
