About the Authors
  • The Small Arms Survey 2013 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 organised 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 organisations 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 industrial demilitarisation industry round out the 2013 volume.

    • An introduction summarises the main findings and messages of the book, and chapter introductions list the key findings, allowing readers to glean the main messages of each chapter
    • Features original research, exposing readers to new and cutting-edge research and topical subjects, responding to many readers' thematic interests and concerns
    • Richly illustrated with maps, graphic elements, illustrations and photographs

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Law enforcement must address and anticipate new trends in the illegal acquisition, use, and transfer of firearms to ensure the safety of our communities. Evidence-based research provided by the Small Arms Survey 2013 can help us better understand the problem of violent crime involving the use of firearms. I invite all those organizations, authorities, and services tasked with preventing and combating crime worldwide to draw full benefit from this new edition of the Survey.' Ronald K. Noble, Secretary General, INTERPOL

    'The 2013 edition of the Small Arms Survey provides valuable insight into the uses of firearms by organized criminal groups. The information it contains will be of interest to those looking to understand and ultimately prevent armed violence by such groups.' Don Luigi Ciotti, President, Libera (Italy)
