Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Crime & Trafficking, Small Arms & Light Weapons (March 2010)
The Council should link effective policies and programs that prevent and respond to the illicit trafficking in small arms as an essential component of maintaining and promoting peace and security. This should include supporting the prevention of international arms transfers that have a substantial risk of fueling patterns of gender-based violence. The Council should also ensure support to local women’s small arms control initiatives through increased capacity-building, provision of resources and funding.
