    • Towards a unified perspective on armed violence
      • A unified perspective on armed violence is important from the practical and analytical points of view, but still a major challenge.
      • Research communities work in isolation and practical programmes are structured by policy-makers within strict boundaries
      • Ideally, a multidisciplinary approach would benefit all, by:
        • widening the focus
        • gaining perspective, fitting particular interests into larger patterns
        • bringing together a wide range of actors in ‘multi-stakeholder’ platforms
        • learning promising solutions and best practices which could be migrated and adapted to specific contexts and conditions.
      GD Second Ministerial Review Conference Geneva, 31 October – 1 November 2011
    • Global Burden of Armed Violence 2011 main findings
      • At least 526,000 victims of lethal violence per year
      • 9 out of 10 of these deaths occur in non-conflict settings
      • Roughly 66,000 women are violently killed each year
      • A significant proportion of homicides in Europe and Asia is related to intimate partners or the family.

    • What is the contribution that crime prevention can provide?
      • Most lethal violence occurs in non-conflict settings where rule of law is established and institutions are expected to function
      • Respect for the rule of is broadly linked with lower levels of intentional homicide
      • Need for well trained and capable law enforcement systems to reduce the risk of abuse of force in weak institutional settings
      • Need to build community trust in the police and other criminal justice institutions
      • Need for easy access to justice for all
      • Need for effective criminal justice systems, to fairly apply the law and ensure prompt and effective investigations, fair trials and sentences
