Summary

On 9-10 November, an OSCE-supported two-day workshop on fighting illicit small arms and light weapons (SALW) was held. The OSCE Conflict Prevention Centre and the OSCE Programme Office in Astana co-organized the event to raise capacity on preventing the diversion of SALW into the hands of organized criminal and terrorist groups through the use of effective transfer controls as well as safe and secure storage of such weapons.

The seminar gathered representatives of Kazakhstan’s law enforcement agencies as well as international experts from Spain, Russia, United Nations, European Union, EUROPOL and Eurasian Economic Commission to exchange international and best national practices as well as identify possible areas for further co-operation.
