Hide / Show Abstract

According to the Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development, on average more than 500,000 people die violently each year, and 44% of violent deaths are committed with firearms. Most armed violence occurs in the context of crime or interpersonal conflict rather than of war: 84% of violent deaths occur in non-conflict countries.
