The research included many segments of social activities, and amongst other things included the following: total legal regulation in the area of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) in BiH; Government capability to implement and administer legal regulations on SALW, the Capacity and role of the military industry in BiH in relation to SALW, activities of the International community in BiH on this issue, Possible education and awareness raising campaigns, etc. The mission of the project was to use the information gained through the comprehensive research to provide recommendations for the future activities of state institutions and NGO’s. This would in effect improve the success of the fight against the problems of SALW in BiH.
