Conference Details

Armed violence is one of the major obstacles for sustainable development. A new opportunity to fight the
spread of illegal arms flow has presented itself with the new global agreement on sustainable
development, Agenda 2030. Goal number 16 specifically addresses the threat of illicit fire-arms.
 
In this seminar the panelists will discuss:
- the cost of armed violence in conflict and post-conflict societies,
- how different actors can work together in order to promote sustainable solutions for reducing armed
violence caused by illegal fire-arms and arms flow,
- how Sweden can contribute to promote a restrictive international arms flow agenda.
