The Small Arms Survey is an independent research project located at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. It serves as the principal source of public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence and as a resource centre for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists. The Small Arms Survey 2009 contains two thematic sections. The first highlights the challenges of ensuring security after the formal end of war and comprises an overview chapter and three case studies (Aceh, Afghanistan, and Southern Lebanon). The second thematic section explores various aspects of small arms transfers, including the value of the authorized trade, national controls, and weapons tracing. Additional chapters focus on small arms measures and impacts.

Reviews for Small Arms Survey 2009: Shadows of War

'By providing informed reflection on recent developments in post-conflict security promotion, the Small Arms Survey 2009 makes an important contribution to efforts to assist war-affected societies in securing lasting peace.' Martti Ahtisaari, Former President of Finland, 2008 Nobel Peace Prize laureate 'The Small Arms Survey consistently serves as an invaluable resource to diplomats, practitioners, and other stake-holders involved in the development and implementation of small arms policy. In assessing post-conflict security challenges, transfer controls, and next steps in the UN small arms process, the Small Arms Survey 2009 makes another vital contribution to our collective efforts to curb the proliferation and misuse of small arms.' Ambassador Dalius Cekuolis, Former Chairperson, Third Biennial Meeting of States on the UN Programme of Action 'The Small Arms Survey 2009 underscores the terrible impact of conflict on children and youth. It highlights children's vulnerabilities, and in some cases, their resilience. It also explains how some children are drawn deeper into conflict as perpetrators of violence. I hope the Survey will embolden our efforts to stop the spread of the weapons that fuel such profound suffering.' Graca Machel, President, the Foundation for Community Development; Chairperson, the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD)
