Regional Organizations and the UN Programme of Action on Small Arms (PoA)

Second Edition. By Eric G. Berman and Kerry Maze, June 2016

Profiles 52 regional organizations, explaining their role in implementing the PoA.

Regional organizations have an important function in the control of small arms, as illicit small arms are often related to regional conflicts and smuggled regionally. Transborder cooperation, information sharing, and regionally harmonized marking and tracing are essential elements of an effective small arms control mechanism.

This Handbook provides a wealth of information on regional activities, and draws some useful connections among the antinarcotic, anti-terrorism, and anti-transnational-crime communities.
