Summary The challenges presented by small arms and light weapons in the Pacific are examined in this book. Such issues as the legal framework for the regulation of firearms in Pacific states and the legal trade in small arms in the region are examined. The cross-border illicit trade in small arms and ammunition, illegal weapons and the problems they cause, and leakage of arms and ammunition from military and police armories are also explored. The book contends that effectively combating the growing small arms problem in the Pacific will require comprehensive and sustained policies by all the governments within the region and help from the international community.
