Action Against Small Arms View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    The uncontrolled spread and misuse of small arms and light weapons constitute a crisis of global proportions. They destroy both lives and livelihoods; they are a threat to peace and development, to democracy and human rights. Since the mid-1990s, civil-society groups and some progressive governments have begun to develop measures to combat the crisis. This handbook is a resource which draws together lessons from successful campaigns in many parts of the world. It is primarily designed to be a resource for civil-society organizations, but should also be of use to anyone seeking to develop more effective action against the spread and misuse of small arms. The book is divided into four main sections. Part one sets the policy context for action, giving a concise and informative survey of the major national, regional and international initiatives to combat the proliferation and abuse of small arms. Parts two and three provide a set of easily adaptable, practical tools and techniques to help with strategic planning and action, supported by case studies of positive impact achieved by activists around the world. Part four provides a directory of organizations currently working on the small-arms issue.
