Firearm-related violence is a serious issue that kills 40-50 people each year in Sweden and which is still getting worse even though it is decreasing in other countries, according to a recent report from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. What can Sweden learn from the US, Great Britain, Finland, Denmark, Taiwan, Serbia and Central American countries? The conference Against firearm-related violence in Sweden inspires politicians, decision-makers, civil servants and civil society actors to take action against the issue of gun-related violence.
Against firearm-related violence in Sweden presents Swedish and international research as well as methods, experiences and best practices from both Sweden and other countries around the world. We discuss the many different strategies, how effective they have proven, and whether they would work in Swedish municipalities.
