About this talk

Trafficking in firearms--a form of transnational organized crime that is included in the UN Convention on Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC)--generates many negative effects, including armed violence. Building on a theme introduced at the 24-hour Conference on Organized Crime in 2020, the session will explore practical ideas, methodologies and indicators for assessing to what extent instruments such as the UNTOC and its Firearm Protocol, as well as the UN Programme of Action on Small Arms and Light Weapons, are impacting levels of violence at the national, regional and global levels within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Target 16.1.
