Arms are out of control.
Arms kill more than half a million men, women and children on average each year. Many thousands more are maimed, or tortured, or forced to flee their homes. The uncontrolled proliferation of arms fuels human rights violations, escalates conflicts, and intensifies poverty. The time for world leaders to act is now.
This volume provides a hard-hitting analysis of how abuse of small arms across the world is fuelling poverty and suffering.
To confront this, Oxfam, Amnesty International and the International Action Network on Small Arsm (IANSA) have together launched an international campaign calling for effective arms controls to make people genuinely safer from the threat of armed violence.
