    Your question above is incorrect.

    The correct question is : what does "dunno" mean ?

    The answer is : a slang form for 'I don't know'.

    "la violence systémique" ? something inherent in a system ? Dunno !

    Wrong. You knew:
    Hunger and poverty are two prime examples of what is described as "structural violence," that is, physical and psychological harm that results from exploitive and unjust social, political and economic systems.;)

    Arielles, some French reading for you ...

    L'analyse sociologique et l'ethnographie nous montrent que la plupart des formes de violence (guerres, violations des droits de l'homme, racisme, inégalités des sexes, toxicomanie, épidémies) sont profondément enracinées dans des structures sociales inéquitables. La violence aiguë et chronique est, aujourd'hui plus que jamais, le fruit de la violence structurelle, celle de la pauvreté et des injustices sociales.

    In this case, it could simply be "la violence du capitalisme" ;-)
    Or maybe a "fashion" word these days : "insécurité sociale" (but "insécurité" is not as strong as "violence" so it may not be appropriate).
