The 2015 edition of the Survey's annual flagship publication examines the role of weapons and armed violence in humanity’s appropriation of the earth’s wildlife and mineral riches. In addition to presenting updates on the UN small arms process and the top arms importers and exporters, the volume also assesses how recent technological developments affect weapons marking, record-keeping, and tracing; reviews small arms flows to Egypt, Libya, and Syria before and after the ‘Arab Spring’; and evaluates a stockpile management initiative in South-east Europe. The ‘armed actors’ section sheds light on the arms and ammunition used by insurgents in northern Mali, the decline of the Forces Démocratiques de Libération du Rwanda, and the use of floating armouries by private security companies in the Indian Ocean. This edition also analyses the conditions that are driving young people to adopt high-risk coping strategies in Burundi.
