About the Authors
  • In examining various aspects of the provision of security, the Small Arms Survey 2011 considers the growth of the private security industry and its firearms holdings worldwide; the firearms holdings of private security personnel; the use of private security companies by multinational corporations; the use of emerging weapons technology among Western police forces; and legislative controls over the civilian possession of firearms in 42 jurisdictions around the world. Case studies provide original research on ongoing security challenges in Côte d'Ivoire, Haiti and Madagascar. This edition also presents the 2011 Small Arms Trade Transparency Barometer, an estimate of the annual authorized trade in light weapons, and a review of developments related to small arms control at the United Nations.

    • Highlights main trends and concerns in the changing relationship between private security provision and state security forces
    • Provides policy-makers and researchers with original research and an up-to-date assessment of developments in the provision of security
    • Richly illustrated with maps, graphic elements, illustrations and photographs
