Global Burden of Armed Violence Report (2011)

21 October 2011
This Report confirms what IANSA women have known for many years, “The proportion of homicides related to intimate partners or the family represents a significant proportion of homicides in some countries in Europe and Asia.” Chapter 4 focuses on ‘When the Victim is a Woman’ and seeks to disaggregate the demographics of armed violence and capture the ways in which women of different ages are at risk. It also considers the particular settings and risks shaping femicide and sexual violence.
