New Briefing Paper on the UN Programme of Action’s Sixth Biennial Meeting

The Sixth Biennial Meeting of States (BMS6) was the final meeting before the Third Review Conference of the UN Small Arms Programme of Action (PoA), scheduled for June 2018, and the first since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The final section of the paper identifies some of the principal challenges—and opportunities—the Review Conference will confront.
