More than 526,000 people are killed each year as a result of lethal violence, and nine out of ten of these deaths occur in non-conflict settings. Lethal violence is strongly linked to underdevelopment and failure to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (Geneva Declaration Secretariat, 2011, p. 1).
Widespread both in conflict and non-conflict situations, violence against women has devastating effects on individuals, communities, and on economic and social development generally.
Tackling Violence against Women: From Knowledge to Practical Initiatives is a new publication from the Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development, discussing the need for specific initiatives to address this global problem.
