Hosted by the International Relations and Security Network (ISN) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ) in cooperation with the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)

Battling and regulating the global small arms trade remains an important part of promoting international peace and development. Although these efforts are indeed well established, what isn’t so clear is the growing role of hidden-hand actors in the trade. This panel shines a light on the activities of these new players and offers some options to combat them.
