Launch of Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers

To be launched 2 July 2013, at the UN Palais des Nations, Geneva

The Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers explores the many faces of armed violence outside the context of armed conflict.

Chapters on the use of firearms in intimate partner violence, the evolution of gangs in Nicaragua, Italian organized crime groups, and trends in armed violence in South Africa describe the dynamics and effects of gun violence in the home and on the street.

Many of the chapters in the ‘weapons and markets’ section zero in on the use of specific weapons by particular armed actors, such as drug-trafficking organizations and insurgents. These include chapters on the prices of arms and ammunition at illicit markets in Lebanon, Pakistan, and Somalia; illicit weapons recovered in Mexico and the Philippines; and
the impacts of improvised explosive devices on civilians.

Chapters on the Second Review Conference of the UN Programme of Action and the ammunition demilitarization industry round out the 2013 volume.

The Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers will be officially launched on 2 July 2013 at the United Nations Palais des Nations in Geneva.
