About the product

This paper draws a rough sketch of the characteristics of small arms and identifies major trends in their manufacture, acquisition and trade. It also provides a global profile of armed conflicts occurring within States. After looking at the instances of linkage and coincidence between small arms and intra-state conflicts, concluding observations are made with a view to assist in policy formulation.
