This is the last In Brief in a four-part series that summarises key findings from an analysis of reports of sorcery accusation–related violence (SARV) in national newspaper articles and court cases over a 20-year period (1996–2016). The three previous In Briefs outlined the study and its methodology and highlighted key aspects of, and responses to, reported incidents of SARV. This In Brief presents trends across the 20 years that are apparent in levels of reported incidents, victimisation and arrests.
