Renewing Commitments on Small Arms and Light Weapons Issues (The UN PoA at 20: Reviewing the United Nation’s Small Arms and Light Weapons Agenda)

It has been nearly a quarter century since Japan took the initiative in establishing a UN Group of Government Experts on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW). This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Programme of Action (PoA) on SALW.

In light of the 7th Biennial Meeting on the PoA scheduled in July, Japan aims to review the current SALW issues facing the international community with focus on the roles of General Assembly and Security Council.
