About IANSA 

The International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) is a global movement against gun violence that links hundreds of organizations working to stop the proliferation and misuse of small arms and light weapons. IANSA local member organizations can be found in Africa, the Americas, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, and Europe. We have Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, and are the official coordinator of civil society participation in UN meetings on small arms. 


Resources on this website such as briefing papers, reports, UN Conference documents and videos are provided to support civil society organizations, government officials, journalists, students and individuals in their work on issues related to small arms and light weapons.
