This special edition of the IANSA UN Bulletin features summaries from sessions and side events during the Fourth session of the ATT Preparatory Committee (13-17 February 2012) and the Preparatory Committee for the Second PoA Review Conference (19-23 March 2012).

Representatives of civil society spoke in the afternoon plenary session of the preparatory committee (PrepCom) for the 2012 Review Conference (RevCon) on 21 March 2012.

The purpose of the PrepCom is to lay the groundwork for the RevCon, 27 August – 7 September 2012. The PrepCom is expected to produce a draft agenda for the RevCon i.e. which solutions to the problem of gun violence are open for discussion.
