Using data from the Geneva Declaration’s latest report, London- based Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) infographic reveals surprising facts about the global burden of armed violence. Half a million people die violent deaths every year, but only one in 10 is killed in conflict zones, according to the infographic released June 25, 2013. El Salvador is the most dangerous country in the world, followed by Iraq. Sri Lanka is listed as the ninth most dangerous country.
The Global Burden of Armed Violence reports, released on 2008 and 2011, take an integrated approach to the complex and volatile dynamics of armed violence around the world, bringing into sharp focus the wide-ranging costs of conflict and crime on development.
