Research Note

In 2011–12 the Small Arms Survey examined the weapon-marking initiative under way among member states of the Regional Centre on Small Arms in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and Bordering States (RECSA), the first regional marking initiative of its kind. Making a Mark: Reporting on Firearms Marking in the RECSA Regiona Special Report published in partnership with RECSA—describes the initiative, its successes, and its challenges.

The Small Arms Survey has also published this short Research Note, Lessons Learned from Weapon-marking Initiatives, which offers an overview and condenses the key findings of the study. This Research Note is available both in English and in French.
