The 16 Days Campaign <> in 2013 focuses on 
a number of priority areas 
including the proliferation of small arms and the link to domestic 
violence and intimate partner violence. Below is a report from the Small 
Arms Survey that looks at armed violence outside the context of conflict 

The/ Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers/ explores the many faces 
of armed violence outside the context of conflict. Chapters on the use 
of firearms in intimate partner violence, the evolution of gangs in 
Nicaragua, Italian organized 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. The 'weapons and markets' section draws 
attention to the use of specific weapons by particular armed actors, 
such as drug-trafficking organizations and insurgents. The section 
includes 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 ammunition demilitarization industry round 
out the 2013 volume.
