Week of Action 2011: Activities in Peru

In Peru, the Institute of Security and Human Rights (ISDH) hosted a radio interview with the head of the National Commission about what the state of Peru is doing to fight the proliferation of small arms in the country. They also organised a conference at the Ricardo Palma University in Lima, with more than 90 students participating. Speakers included representatives from the UN regional centre on small arms (UN-LiREC), the Peruvian Crime Observatory, and the head of the National Commission. They highlighted the importance of the ATT and the commitments of the Peruvian government to the ATT process. The event was covered by the radio station IDL and the newspaper 'Voces'. The organisers reported that it was a great success.
