This review draws together articles from a range of different disciplines to highlight the central role played by social context and policing in the dynamics of crowd conflict. Accordingly, the review highlights the importance and value of interdisciplinary dialogue both in attempts to advance theoretical understanding of the dynamics through which crowd events become violent but also in using knowledge to advance and defend democratic and human rights-based forms of state intervention into crowd events.
