Combating the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons: Biting the Bullet - Briefing 6.

This briefing in the Biting the Bullet series looks at enhancing controls on legal transfers.

International Alert, in collaboration with BASIC and Saferworld, is working to facilitate the dialogue between government and civil society in order that an effective programme of action follows from the 2001 UN Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All its Aspects.
