This Handbook is designed to assist and inform policymakers who are new to  small arms on the international agenda. While it is not meant to serve as a policy tool or as an exhaustive review of the small arms process, this concise manual includes:

  • definitions and terminology;
  • a brief history of the small arms process;
  • summaries of key issues, instruments, and measures; and
  • an overview of the roles of various institutions.
