Small Arms and Gender-Based Violence in Montenegro (2007)

31 October 2007
This study provides research into the impact of the presence of arms on the lives of women, in particular on gender-based violence involving arms. NGOs in Montenegro often draw attention to criminal offences in which women are exposed to violence involving arms: domestic violence, sexual assaults and trafficking. The data obtained from the Police Directorate reveals yet another aspect of violence against women: criminal offences against the life and integrity of a person committed with the use of firearms.
