Armed violence—the intentional, threatened or actual use of arms to inflict death or injury—takes many forms around the world, but it always has devastating consequences. More than two thirds of reported victims of armed violence in 2011 lived in countries not in armed conflict. According to the Global Burden of Armed Violence, more than 500,000 people die worldwide every year as a consequence of armed violence. And the indirect consequences of armed violence extend far beyond these numbers when one considers injuries, forced migration and the impact of violence on people’s livelihoods.
