  Annotation: The National Institute of Justice's Homicide Research Working Group convened meetings in 1997 and 1998 to address policy and practice dimensions of homicide research and to foster collaboration regarding lethal violence research, theory, and prevention policy.
Abstract: Participants specifically considered building bridges between research and practice. They also addressed the process of collaboration to prevent domestic violence, the risk of serious injury or death in intimate violence, uxoricide risk for women with children sired by previous partners in the United States and Canada, methodological challenges to evaluating the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Law, and the link between race and class and homicide. In addition, participants discussed demography and lethal violence, the use of firearm tracing information in violence reduction projects, youth gang and drug involvement, youth violence, and music and youth violence. Appendixes contain additional information on the need for collaboration in violence prevention, firearm surveillance, situational factors related to murder incidents, gunshot wounds among jail detainees, violent gun crimes, child abuse, and youth violence. Data on homicides in specific geographic areas are provided. References, tables, and figures
