Small Arms Survey

The Small Arms Survey is an independent research project located at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. It serves as the principal international source of public information on all aspects of small arms and as a resource for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists. The project has an international staff with expertise in security studies, political science, international public policy, law, economics, development studies, conflict resolution, and sociology. The staff works closely with a worldwide network of researchers and partners.

The objectives of the Small Arms Survey are:

  • To serve as the principal international source of impartial and public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence.
  • To act as a resource for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists in terms of information and research on small arms and armed violence issues.
  • To be an independent monitor of national and international governmental and non-governmental policy initiatives on small arms and armed violence.
  • To be an outlet for policy-relevant research on small arms and armed violence issues.
  • To act as a forum and clearinghouse for the sharing of information as well as the dissemination of best practice measures and initiatives dealing with small arms and armed violence issues.
