Gun Violence, Disability and Recovery – New Publication

Cate Buchanan, Director of the Surviving Gun Violence Project based in Sydney, presented a webinar on her forthcoming book that has been developed over the past 3 years with contributors from around the globe. It brings together survivors of gun violence and their experiences and very personal stories with those of advocates and activists, academic researchers and professionals from many disciplines. Unlike most studies of gun violence it does not focus on prevention or mortality but on the disabling consequences of gun violence in various contexts. Examples from Haiti, Burundi, the United States and many other countries are included in the book. Gun violence, Disability and Recovery is positioned at the intersection of health, human rights and disability and grounded in a social justice, public health and environmentally focused understanding. The book is seen as a starting point of further research, advocacy and knowledge mobilisation activities of this emerging network.
A recording of the webinar and the new book Gun Violence,Disability and Recovery is now available to view here.
