The widespread proliferation and easy availability of small arms is a pressing threat to the security of the states and peoples of South Asia. In response, South Asia Partnership International has been working on a initiative to find effective solutions for this growing problem. Dr Arputharaj has played a key role in this initiative and in the South Asian peace movement. He and his colleague will speak about the small arms issue, in a regional and international context, including the recent formalization of  SASANet  Small Arms in South Asia Network. A South Asian civil society led formation, the aim of SASANet is to influence policy and bring about security sector reform in South Asia through effective research, advocacy and public engagement, at the local, national and regional level.
