Tackling Armed Violence. Key Findings and Recommendations of the Study on the Violent Nature of Crime in South Africa

In February 2007 the Minister of Safety and Security contracted the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation to carry out a study on the violent nature of crime in South Africa. This document is the final report, Component 6 of the project. It provides what may be regarded as the "high level" findings of the study as well as the principal recommendations emerging from it. It therefore integrates some, but not all, of the material from the five other reports and readers are referred to these reports for more in-depth data and analysis on the issues which they deal with.
