Centre for Security Studies, in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme in Bosnia and Herzegovina (UNDP BiH) have jointly embarked on a Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) National Awareness-Raising Campaign.

The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness amongst the population regarding the dangers of illegal possession of firearms and to educate citizens how to recognize individual and collective threats to security. Activities which will be implemented in the course of the project will seek to inform the designated target groups about these dangers via a media information campaign, on the local as well as national level and through sporting activities targeted at population below the age of 25. The implementation of the project is already under way, and is envisaged to be completed in January 2009.
