Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers

Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers, launched at the United Nations in Geneva on 2 July 2013, explores the many faces of armed violence outside the context of conflict.

This short video offers an overview of the key findings.

Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers

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.

The ‘weapons and markets’ section draws attention to the use of specific weapons by particular armed actors, such as drug-trafficking organizations and insurgents. The section includes 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.
