Controlling Small Arms

Consolidation, Innovation and Relevance in Research and Policy


Edited by Peter Batchelor and Kai Michael Kenkel, January 2014

Published by Routledge 

This edited volume explores and outlines the research and policy on the small arms issue at this critical juncture. In addition to providing a detailed telling of the genesis and evolution of small arms research and advocacy, the volume features a series of essays from leading scholars in the field on both advances in research and action on small arms and light weapons. It reflects on what has been achieved in terms of cumulative advances in data, methodology, and analysis, and looks at the ways in which these developments have helped to inform policy making at national, regional, and international levels. Alongside situating and integrating past and present advances in advocacy and international action, Controlling Small Arms also outlines future directions for research and action.
