INT/Support to Small Arms Surveyn

Description

The Small Arms Survey is an independent research project. It serves as the principal international source of public information on all aspects of small arms and as a resource for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists. Effective governmental or non-governmental action depends on a correct diagnosis of the problem, yet policy-makers, analysts, and activists often lack basic information concerning the production, transfer, stockpiling, and use of small arms and light weapons around the world. The objectivesof the Survey are 1. to serve as the principal international source of impartial and public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence 2. To act as a resource for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists in terms of information and research on small arms and armed violence issues 3. To be an independent monitor of national and international governmental and non-governmental policy initiatives on small arms and armed violence 4. To be an outlet for policy-relevant research on small arms and armed violence issues. 5. To act as a forum and clearinghouse for the sharing of information as well as the dissemination of best practice measures and initiatives dealing with small arms and armed violence issues. The proliferation of small arms and light weapons represents a grave threat to human security. The success of efforts to deal with small arms and light weapons depends in large part on the development of accurate information concerning the global flow of these weapons and on reliable analyses of the causes and consequences of their proliferation. The projects aims to reach the above mentioned goals. http://www.smallarmssurvey.org/
