The work is dedicated to studying of the violence problem. Special attention is paid to its definition, etiology and consequences. The most important approaches to this phenomenon are presented such as: Instinctual theories, theories explaining the aggression as the reaction to a particular situation, the theory of social learning, cognitive and biological theories. The forms of violence are also presented and described which, according to the WHO definition, divide into violence to oneself, interpersonal violence and collective violence. After a complete presentation, definition, theoretical definitions and typologies of violence, the violence in partner relationships and towards the elderly is particularly shown and analyzed, since it is related to the partner and
family problems. An overview of the possible society reactions through regulation and control of violence, best reflected in the legislation is given here, as well as specific answer from legal system in Bosnia and Herzegovina as the closest example.
The conclusion summarizes debates and opens up new perspectives of viewing and researching violence as well as its new definition, where violence is seen as any behavior intentionally or unintentionally harmful to any person or group to which it is directed, also to a fellow men, directly during such action or afterwards, if it has been experienced as such by any of the actors.
