The Small Arms Survey

RoadMap Media is proud to announce the publication of its podcast series produced for the Small Arms Survey.

The Survey is an independent research project located at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, serving as the principal international source of public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence and as a resource for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists.

Small Arms Survey's activities span research, policy advice, and specialised training, raising awareness about armed violence, weapons proliferation, and international processes addressing these issues. This podcast series brings the voices and experience of the Survey's experts closer to a wider audience, which it seeks to inform and engage.

Small Arms Survey Yearbook video

We were very happy to be able to do a short video about the 2013 Yearbook “Everyday Dangers” from the Small Arms Survey:

Small Arms Survey 2013: Everyday Dangers focuses on small arms and armed violence outside war zones, with chapters on organized crime and gang violence, the use of firearms in intimate partner violence, and violent land disputes. Understanding the diverse forms and expressions of non-conflict armed violence, which dwarfs conflict violence worldwide, is crucial to national and multilateral violence prevention and reduction efforts.

For more information on the Yearbook go to the Small Arms Survey website.
