The Small Arms Survey is pleased to announce a briefing on armed actors and arms trafficking in North Africa, South Sudan and Sudan. Three Survey experts will highlight key findings emerging from their research in a region in flux.

As tensions escalate again in Libya, gaining a better understanding of the dynamics and influence of armed groups is as crucial as ever. Moncef Kartas and Nicolas Florquin of the Survey’s Security Assessment in North Africa will discuss findings of ongoing research in Libya and North Africa, with particular focus on the role played by armed groups in trafficking in Libya and beyond its borders, and its potential consequences for the broader region.

As unconfirmed reports emerge that elements of the governments of Sudan and Eritrea are arming opposition forces in South Sudan, the Small Arms Survey has published a detailed report on the types of weapons documented in the hands of non-state actors in Sudan and South Sudan in 2011-13. Emile LeBrun of the Survey’s Human Security Baseline Assessment (HSBA) for Sudan and South Sudan will discuss the findings of HSBA Working Paper 32: Following the Thread: Arms and Ammunition Tracing in Sudan and South Sudan.
The briefing follows the launch of the Small Arms Survey 2014: Women and Guns at the United Nations in New York on 16 June 2014.
